ACA 2013 fails to load content service

I loaded stand alone version of ACA 2013 on Windows 7 machine and during installation I recieved a message "Content Service Installer" failed error 2738.  Rest of installation proceeded fine, but now when I try to use the content browser, nothing shows up.  I have no anti-virus running.  I already tried a complete uninstall, including folders and registry keys, and same thing happens on reinstall.  I am at my wits end!  I've attached the content service log for your perusal.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!
