Has anyone not been able to install Live Lite 8 after downloading?

I recently had a hard drive crash and I am re-installing Ableton.  I have the Ableton Live Lite 6 CD that came with my M-Audio sound card and that installs okay.  For some reason, when after I download the installer for Live Lite 8, I get the following message:

"Ableton Live 8 Setup Wizard ended prematurely"

 

Does anyone have any ideas?

    Ey Guys,

    I received response from Ableton Support on this. Here is it as it worked for me:

    Please download and install the following package:
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86):
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5582

    Reboot your computer and try running the installer again.

    Had this problem after reinstalling Windows XP and then reinstalling my boxed version of Live 7 LE and needing to upgrade to Intro as before. Kept getting the installation terminated dialog box. Did the above download link and that did the trick. Thanks.
