"There is a problem with this installer package - script is required to complete install," - please can someone clarify script supplied.

I have downloaded EMET 4.1 but it will not install -

"There is a problem with this Windows installer package. A script required for this install to complete. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."

I have seen the same problem answered in the support section with a script posted as follows, and wondered if it would solve my problem - only  there is no explanation with it and I have no idea what to do with it! Forgive my ignorance but could someone please explain what to do with it please? Many thanks.

(I looked up the other thread but I was no wiser.)

Please create and check a verbose Installer logfile: msiexec.exe /?

' Begin

Set objProcesses = GetObject("winmgmts://" & strMachine).ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Process WHERE Caption LIKE '" & strAppName & "'")

For Each objProcess In objProcesses
