Installer gets fatal message on installation of a subdirectory in /usr/local/bin

Hello,

We've been trying to convert an Install which was successfully created on Linux to Windows, and for the most part it's working. However, the installer GUI always ends by saying "the installation of Sick_InstallerV1.4 has been rolled back. Please see installation log for details."


The installation log pointed to by the error log shows the following problems:


21/02/2019 11:06:37:180
Install Directory: /usr/local/bin/Sick_InstallerV1.4/_Sick_InstallerV1.4_installation/
Status: FATAL ERROR

21/02/2019 11:06:37:182
Install Uninstaller: Sick_InstallerV1.4 (Install All Uninstaller Components)
Status: ERROR
Additional Notes: ERROR - Install Parent Directory '_Sick_InstallerV1.4_installation' failed!


So, it looks like for some reason there's always a fatal error related to the "usr/local/bin/Sick_InstallerV1.4/_Sick_InstallerV1.4_installation/" directory, which cause the subsequent message that the install of the parent directory failed.

However, this directory actually exists after the install is finished.

I'm able to run the scripts extracted from the install to complete my product install. But, the message is concerning and prevents it from be distributed to customers.

Note, what directed me to the above is the file /var/logs/sick/error.log. Here are its relevant contents:
