    This happened to me because i had multiple users on my computer and I was not the Administrator.

    1. I cleared all instances of Java from my system(check even c:\User folder)(this step might not be necessary).

    2. Copied the setup to my C:\ drive.

    3. Check user permissions. Gave full control to all users and groups.

    4. Ran it as Administrator.

    This did the trick.
