I also tried different python installers but they show same error. I even tried installation after updating my windows but nothing worked. Please tell me what to do??

Answer

Was facing the same problem in windows 8 - 64 bit .. try doing this..

Go to C:/Users//AppData/Local . right click on the folder "Temp". Go to Properties. Go to Security Tab. Click on "Everyone" and "Edit" the permission to "full control"-> allow. Click apply.

try running the installer again. YOu should be good to go.
