msiexec failed with return code 1603 / installing SAP MMC Snap-In and creat

I am installing SAP ABAP trial on windows 7 and I have encountered some problems.

Please help me solve this problem.

Phase 2 : install common system files

Error happened during this step: installing SAP MMC Snap-In and creating shortcuts

Error message:

Running msiexec failed with return code 1603: Schwerwiegender Fehler bei der Installation.

Commandline was msiexec.exe /norestart /L sapmmcX86u.log /i sapmmcX86u.msi /qn

If you want the installer to retry, choose Yes. If you want the installer to abort the installation, choose No.

I have alreday given the permission/rights that are necessary for the user who is installing the system.
