OK, open your Temp folder (open Windows Explorer, then type %temp% in the location bar) and look for any files starting with PdnSetup. Do this after the installer crashes, but before closing anything.
If you find any such files, post them here.
I don't see the file attached. ???? Will do it again just in case I did something wrong.

It's just a text file. Should I rename it and try again? I'll just copy and paste what's in it:
