    The best solution for all setup and installation problems,
    is related to Windows Installer database. Because it store such information about the temp location of the install packages but it never update itself on second installation attempts
    or somehow got conflicted about it causes such errors like:

    - The path to the installation package is not found.
    - Windows cannot find the specific file.
    - Installation failed (Unknown Error)

    The Solution:
    Download this utility: Windows Installer Clean Up from: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Securit...-Utility.shtml

    it's a free version, install it and then run it, look at the list of the programs and select the program that you are trying to install
    (in our case here select all what begins with: Windows Live and also select Microsoft Silverlight and you can multi select using Ctrl key) and press Clean.
    It will take about 5 ~ 10 minutes to clear all the stored info in the Windows Installer database, after it finishes you can close the tool, run the setup again.
