I'm testing out the solution found at Superuser.com:

In my case, the DLL wasn't missing--the installer didn't have permissions to access the folder. I didn't try running the installer as an administrator--this didn't make sense to me considering I was already using an admin account and would have expected UAC to handle privileges elevation. Anyway, like many things in Windows, this whole thing is a bit of a mystery to me. Nevertheless, after going to Properties > Security on the C:\Users\x\AppData\Local\Temp folder and giving that Everyone the Full control permission, installers that previous had been failing now worked! Hooray!
UPDATE: You can also give yourself (your user name) the full control, not Everyone.

Here's the steps:

Quote:
  • Right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.
  • Click the Security tab, and then click Edit.

Do one of the following:
  • To set permissions for a user that is not listed under Group or user names, click Add, type the name of the user or group, click OK, select the permissions, and then click OK.
  • To change or remove permissions from an existing group or user, click the name of the group or user, select the permissions, and then click OK.
