Program not installing under windows 8

I have a software that installs a program on win 8. I have no problems with this on any previous version of windows.

I go to the page that installs it and I am prompted with 'error 1', I click Run and then it prompts me to run the add on, right after I click on 'install' the add on It takes me back to the same 'error 1'  in a circle.

So it says its not compatible, then I select Run anyways, then it runs and takes me back to error1.

I have already checked that the enhanced mode is turned off, the site is in the trusted sites and I still cannot find a way to have it installed in this particular win 8 computer.

I have a different win 8 computer in which it installed just fine, I checked the ie settings (advanced) and they are identical. No antivirus installed either.

Why not try a manual installation to see if you get the same error?

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Install another browser (chrome/firefox9) and try it from there for a test.

This particular add on is only for internet explorer, so that won't work.
