Calibre install fails windows 8

Hi all,
I'm trying to install calibre 0.9.28.msi on a windows 8 laptop. It fails when it tries to install 3 links. One of the messages is

Warning 1909. Could not create shortcut E-book viewer.lnk
Verify that the destination folder exists and that you can access it.

I've run the install from the cmd line to create a log file and the following is the part of the install log that I think is relevant. Can someone point out what's going wrong?
Many thanks.

Spoiler:

Looks like your computer has corrupted/missing start menu folders. If you cant fix those, then I suggest using calibre portable, it has no installer, so you should be able to workaround the issue.

Many thanks for the very quick reply. I'll look into that over the coming week.
