No need to disable Windows Firewall, the software installer will take care of that and it's dangerous to do so anyway. Did you completely remove all traces of any previous security software including if applicable the use of their removal tool?
Is every aspect of Windows, including Internet Explorer, even if you don't use it, up to date? 12152 could be a server issue. Try downloading the installer, save it to your desktop, right-click > Properties and Unblock if needed, then reboot and try the installation again.

The thing that seemed to do the trick was to go to IE Settings > Advanced, then Click the Reset Button. Restart the computer and start again with the install!
Hope this helps others in the same situation.
Great, that's because the software uses IE for background processes, updates, downloads etc. despite your default browser selection.
