The installation interrupts with the error-message “There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.”

There are two solution to this problem
Solution a: Start the command prompt as an administrator and thereafter do the installation in the command prompt.
Solution b: Install SIMCA/MODDE as an silent installation, for details on how to do that see this link; http://www.umetrics.com/kb/silent-installation-1
