It seems that it also wants certain files in certain places when doing an install. I tried making sure that the EULA was accessible during the install and point it there when the "couldn't be found" error came up....no luck. It will also come up with a "can't find Precopy1.cab" if you do get past the EULA error. Same story.
I'm still working on it so maybe I'll come up with something yet.
