This is a shot in the dark, but I googled the error and it might not be related specifically to Python:
Error while installing programs (Microsoft TechNet)

To quote the moderator that posted the solution:

The cause could be an unsuccessful install of prior Windows Updates OR Custom MSI packages could have left over faulty registry keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONETS.
