Ah ok cool. So two things I would suggest...

1) email their support, they will provide easy access to the MSI (i think). Check this out: http://developer.dynamsoft.com/dwt/kb/2907

2) run the installer on your computer, and look for TEMP files. If their documentation doesn't tell you how to run this, such as setup.exe /admin or similar, these files are extracted and then deleted by the wonky installers in many situations. You may find you can get to them yourself if their support is slow/not responsive.

OH and BTW I just downloaded the trial to test and I do see the MSI in the %TEMP% folder, in a random GUID type of folder. Sort by date modified, look for it. Mine is the trial but use your full install media and it shall work I bet :P
