Installation terminates with error message "Cannot run installation module" or "One of the running programs is preventing this installation from continuing normally"

Problem

Installation may terminate with the messages "Cannot run installation module" or "One of the running programs is preventing this installation from continuing normally".

Solution

Restart the computer, close all open windows, disable virus scanners and similar utilities and try to run the installation again. Note that after the error message from SETUP.EXE the temporary installation folder(s) (usually C:\~EPNINST or C:\~EPNINSx where x is a number) will probably not be deleted. After the installation is completed, you can safely delete them manually.
