After the installation hung the first time (no progress for over an hour), I killed the task.
Rerunning the installer now causes the error:
OS is Windows 8 Pro x64. Previously had 9.0.2 installed without issue.

Do you have an Avast AntiVirus or Internet Security product installed? If yes, this has been an issue in the recent past and the workaround was to temporarily uninstall Avast, install VMware Player/Workstation, reinstall Avast. Disabling Avast in these cases was not enough!
