You're not installing from a mapped drive, are you? 1.4 introduced a new bug meaning that you could no longer install from a setup file stored on a mapped network drive. If you tried, it generally crashed with errors very similar to the ones you are describing. I don't know if this has been fixed in 1.5 or not. I did create a bug (can't remember the number), but it got no attention.
