Launching an installation from a system account, like the scheduler service, may result in the 2103 error. This can occur if you are initiating a per-user installation. Only per-machine installations are permitted from the system account because the system account does not have all of the necessary per-user profile folders.
Also, for Microsoft Office and several other setups, this behavior has been reported to occur if the following registry key is missing or damaged:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
