Recently I have been trying to install Maya 2015 but keep stumbling upon the same error message part-way through installation.
I have tried downloading and installing via multiple methods aswell as deleting all files I could find from previous installations and trying again but consistantly get the same error.
My PC is currently running Windows 7 64bit, additional details can be provided if it would help.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks, Thor

The same thing happened to me at first.. The issue may be your virus protection software. It will read the bifrost as a false positive during dowload and delete it before you even get to install.. Try disabling your virus protection until it's installed.
This worked after re-downloading and re-installing Maya, I can't thank you enough!
For anybody curious it was Avast causing the false positive.
I uninstalled and reinstalled without Avast running and got the same error. I had to delete the files out of C:\Autodesk\WI\Autodesk Maya 2015 before it will install properly.
Yeah, the files need to be entirely re-downloaded and so you must delete the others, what was happening with mine was the file in question was for some reason turned into a .bin file rather than a .dll.
Noting the same thing, I did try to rename it back from bin to dll and that let me complete the install just fine. However, when I went to try to use on of the sample scenes, the bifrost node did not work properly.
There is probably some issue with simply changing the file extension of a binary file to a .dll where the data becomes unusable. Glad that we have it fixed though .
I had the same problem yesterday, and I found a way to fix this Error.
Befor you install Maya 2015, set the secure level from your Windowsprofil to the lowest level,
and deativate Avast. After the instalation of Maya 2015, you can change the scure level back.
Sorry for my bad english, but i hope this help you to fix this error.
