Installer "cannot find MSI"

Ability use a standard Microsoft bootstraper called setup.exe to manage the download of the actual installer. If something goes wrong when setup is downloading or executing the installer, then a message similar to "cannot find MSI" will be displayed.

Step 1: first try to run the installer with admin privileges. This will require you to re-login to Windows as the Admin user and then try the downloader again.
