I think its related to some permissions Issue.
Are you installing with Administrator account?
Use ProcMon it will tell you what might be the exact problem

Error 1406 (documented here) means that the installer was unable to write a value to a registry key, clearly indicating a permission issue. As Arjun says, obtain and run ProcMon (a tool without which you cannot do this job). It will show you which key is being accessed. You can then add a Custom Action to a transform (never directly edit a vendor-supplied MSI) to permission the key appropriately. Remember, when creating your transform, to make the MSI read-only first, in order to prevent inadvertent changes being made to it.
