Network Monitor MSI / Setup give Error Opening log file

When you try to install using Microsoft MSI, you bump into the following message

“Error Opening Installation log file. Verify that the specified log file location exists and is writable”

Workaround, extract the .exe file by using the following command below

NM33_x86.exe /c /t:c:\tools\networkmonitor

the /t switch is used to tell installer where to extract the file.

Then try to run netmon.msi to install network monitor. I tried it with Network Monitor 3.3 and it works (Netmon.msi and Microsoft_Parsers.msi)
