Part of the message is in Russian and it says something about Microsoft VBScript execution error: illegal call or procedure argument in Line 17 Column 2

 

My operation system is Windows 10 Pro with all the latest updates installed. All other software install without any issues which makes me think that the problem is in your installation package.

 

It seems this may have something to do with it:

Visual Basic issues in Windows August 2019 Updates - gHacks Tech News 

After installing this update, applications that were made using Visual Basic 6 (VB6), macros using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), and scripts or apps using Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) may stop responding and you may receive an "invalid procedure call error."

It seems MS will fix this issue in one of their updates:

fter installing this update, applications that were made using Visual Basic 6 (VB6), macros using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), and scripts or apps using Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) may stop responding and you may receive an "invalid procedure call error."

Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available in late August. This optional update will be available on the following release channels:
  • Microsoft Update Catalog.
  • Windows Update.
  • Microsoft Update.
  • Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).

As with any optional update, you will need to Check for updates to receive the update once it is released.

Note Windows Update for Business customers should apply the update using the Microsoft Update Catalog or Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).

 

Take a note that:

 

Microsoft revealed plans last month to disable VBScript by default on machines running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2 or 2012 R2. The company disabled VBScript on machines running Windows 10 a month early already.

Microsoft has not revealed additional information about the issue; it is likely that it is related to the announced disabling of VBScript on all versions of Windows.

 

Please, fix your installers.
