Unable to run Lync2010 Additional software msoidcli.msi

This question is answered This question is answered

I have downloaded msoidcli.msi, but when I try to install it fails.

First I see the Windows Installer : Preparing to Install, for about a 1/2 second, then I get:

This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows installer package.


I am running Windows 7 64 Bit via Parallels on Mac OS X 10.x.

Other installs work just fine.
