This is a Zerog InstallAnywhere built-in defect. The workaround is to set the installer to run in Windows XP compatibility mode before running it.

1. Right click on the installer executable and select "Properties"
2. Select the "Compatibility" tab
3. Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for"
4. Select "Windows XP"
5. Launch the installer again
