Have you tried re-downloading the VMD installer? It is also
possible that your installation image was corrupt. I've seen this
sort of thing happen with something like 20 people in the past, where
when they re-downloaded VMD (sometimes they had to use a different network)
the problem with the installer went away. As far as I know, there was
never a case where the installer actually failed with a non-corrupt
