I am not a programmer, but since you are, prehaps you recognize the quoted material from your log. It appears the first parts of the install go fine and then on the last part of the log, something happens. I believe the error shown means "Cannot create a file when that file already exists", but you probably know better than I.

DDSet_Error: Patch Hooks: Missing required property 'ProductFamily': Setup cannot continue.
DDSet_Warning: Setup failed while calling 'getDLLName'. System error: 0xb7
