Installer failure on Windows

On one of our Windows XP machines, we are receiving the following error after launching our installer.

Invocation of setup.exe failed: last error was 3

It appears in a dialog that pops up almost immediately after launching. After clicking "OK", the process goes away. Has anyone else seen this and know what the problem is?

It's a very bizarre error. The only other similar occurrence I could find was this: http://forums.qj.net/psp-development-forum/88888-release-pspshark-version-1-1-now-cwcheat-conversion...
Otherwise, according to this MSDN list of error codes available here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms681382(VS.85).aspx the Windows error 3 means: "ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND 3 (0x3) The system cannot find the path specified."
On the other hand, as this happens on a single machine, obviously there must be something wrong with that particular machine. Do you bundle a VM or not?

Thanks for looking into this. This is the second time we have seen this. The first time was months ago and I can't remember the circumstances under which it occurred. It definitely is very bizarre.

Yes, we are bundling a VM (Sun JRE 1.5.0_11 i18n Win32)
