Ah, okay, so this is due to the embedded DLL in the installer that we extract and use to validate the install path (if you select a path that already exists, you get a prompt warning you).

I don't know why your %TEMP% directory was not read/write/execute, but since it works fine for most people I suspect a configuration issue on your machine. I have seen in the past some "security" policies that will break installers, though typically launching the installer from an elevated command prompt (one that says "Administrator: Command Prompt" in the title) typically avoids these issues.

Glad you found a workaround at least.
