SQL Server 2008R2 SP2 Installation issues

I'm trying to install SQL Server 2008R2 SP2 on a VM box running Server 2008R2 64 bit.

The install fails once the setup for the Support Files runs for about 10 seconds.  There is no error message, the setup window just closes?

Net 4 is installed and Windows Installer is 5.0

Ideas?
