Install Error Autodesk 3ds Max 2011

Hi, I just downloaded the free trial version of Autodesk 3ds Max 2011 and I get an error in the install. Here it is:


The system cannot open the device or file specified.



I click ok and it gives me another error message:

Failed to initialize Autodesk 3ds Max 2011 32-bit


It then brings me back to the install window and does nothing after that. I'm using Windows XP Media Center Edition SP3. Any suggestions?
