Problems installing Calibre on Windows 7

Hi all,
After downloading the installation file from the Calibre site, my Windows 7 (family edition, 32 bits) at home does not allow the .MSI file to be run saying it's an old version and it's blocked by the system policy.

I've tried to install it on a XP PC at the office and works smooth as silk, so my questions are:
- Is this a known problem to Win7?
- Any way to bypass this policy issue?
- Will a Win7 installation program come up soon?

Apart from that, the tool is really fantastic, excellent work guys !!
Thanks in advance for your help !

I have installed calibre in two different PCs with Win7 with no issues.

Someone on your system is playing 'System Administrator' may have tightened the default settings OR your login does not have Administrator privilege (Needed to run a MSI)
