Quest SQL optimizer for SQL Server Installation fails



I’m trying to install Quest SQL optimizer version 7.1.0 (part of Toad for SQL server 5.6 commercial) but I’m getting the error show on the attached image.

Please let me know to whom at Dell I can send the error log for review, or what actions can I take to have this component installed correctly
