windows 8.1 Installation problems

I am trying to install Visual Cobol on my laptop. I am running Windows 8.1, my visual cobol serial number is 600000526614, product name is, Visual COBOL for Visual Studio Personal Edition, version is 2.1.Update 1.
My problem is once I click the install button it flips to a blank and does nothing,  it doesn't matter if I try the  full install or the web install.  I have tried both types several times with the same results.
