Error 1648 when trying to install a software on Windows 8

Original Title: Failure code 1648


I have a windows8 on a acer laptop.  I am trying to download a software off of my USB stick from a old windows7 laptop.  It comes up with the above failure code when the install shield wizard is installing.  It looks like the install shield is not working properly. 

Does anyone know what I can do to get this software downloaded?    Do I need to put the install shield wizard on the laptop or is this automatically on it?

Any help and suggestions would be great.
