The error states: Wireshark installer for 64 bit has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.

This occurs regardless of if I run as admin, or do the 32 bit or 64 bit version or if I use the default install directory or custom.

The exact moment of failure is always the same: The last line in the window always says C:\Users\XXX

Thanks. Turns out I had some Malware preventing the install and some corrupted System files. I am in Wireshark heaven now.
