Unable to Install Meteor: Error 0x80070643: Failed to install MSI package


I am trying to install Meteor on my Windows 7 PC using the Windows Installer. Every time I try, it downloads for a while and then a window opens saying that the "Setup Failed". The log file contains the following lines that I think are relevant.

[121C:04D0][2015-10-02T09:38:56]e000: Error 0x80070643: Failed to install MSI package. [121C:04D0][2015-10-02T09:38:56]e000: Error 0x80070643: Failed to configure per-user MSI package. [121C:04D0][2015-10-02T09:38:56]i319: Applied execute package: SetupMeteor_UserInstall, result: 0x80070643, restart: None [121C:04D0][2015-10-02T09:38:56]e000: Error 0x80070643: Failed to execute MSI package.

I believe that this problem is to do with my computer and not the installer, but I am unsure why these errors occur or what I should try in order to fix them.

In my case, I had to cancel the installation and then re-executed it with the administrator privilege. It worked but also took hours to complete (maybe by my internet connection quality).

Here is an alternative way to install on Windows.
