    4. Physical media being used to install the program is damaged.
    5. Required hardware (For example, CD/DVD drive) is malfunctioning.

You may do the following tasks:
Try to install your software after each task.
1.  Delete the cache of your Web browser. To do this, in the Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 window, open Tools menu and then select Delete Browsing History….Next, click the Delete All button and also select the check box in the confirmation box that is displayed. Finally, click Yes to completely clear the browser cache.
2.  If the name of the downloaded installer files comprises multiple words, rename it to have only one word, say, SoftwareNameInstaller.exe.
