NI PCI-6503 driver will not install

I have downloaded the driver for this device from your website.
 
The installation fails with a message
 
specified file not found:[MsiEngine] WinNTpath = supportFiles\instmsiw.exe
 
correct the ini file and try again
 
 
This error occurs when I try to install

NI-DAQmx Ver 8.
 
and exactly the same error occurs when I try to install
 
NI-DAQ (legacy) Ver 7.4.1
 
either of which, I understand, will drive my hardware.
 
The file instmsiw.exe exists in the folder which contains all the unzipped data from the zip file.
 
I am using Win XP but it is installed on my D drive because I am in a multi-boot configuration.
