I found the bitrock-installer.log file (see attached), but it's not much help to me. It shows that it errored running a cscript and exited with an error code. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

There's not much we can do without additional info - we don't know what exactly failed and why. Try digging in the windows system log, for example. I believe there should be a log file from the installer in %TEMP% so maybe there's more info in it.
