Did you install this hotfix? support.microsoft.com/KB/976462 Is your machine sysprepped btw? Because I've seen similar errors related to that. In addition, does the account you're logged on with has the right permissions? –  Thomas Vochten Dec 6 '12 at 8:50

I would install the hotfix. Did you have a look at msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869(v=office.14).aspx and technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485(v=office.14).aspx? There are specific sections on Windows 7 and a standalone install. –  Thomas Vochten Dec 6 '12 at 9:42
