What should I do if I encounter error message 1722 ("There is a problem with this Windows Installer package.") during install?

Blueprint Enterprise cannot be installed in a directory whose path name contains the ampersand symbol (&) or percent symbol (%). Attempting to install to a directory with one of these symbols in the path name will cause the install to fail with the following error:


"Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."


To fix the problem, rename the install directory path without using the & or % symbols.
