However, the setup program itself is not interacting with windows 7 correctly.
I keep getting a windows 7 standard error message after the installer
runs all the setup scripts and gets ready to exit.

does not happen and windows knows it didn't happen and throws up an
message saying that the app likely did not install properly.
