This is a weird one, something I have never seen before and no idea where to start troubleshooting.

Working on a new laptop and transferred several files to a folder called Software within the standard Windows 7 Downloads folder.
Nothing would install when placed in this folder.

I copied the Software folder to the Desktop and all the files worked fine.
Tried again from Downloads and installation fails every time, usually before it can even start.

Brand new laptop
Windows 7 PRO 64bit

Any ideas?

I am not sure this will help with your issue but it shouldn't make it worse.
