VS17 Installation: Bootstrapper has stopped working

I recently created a windows server on Windows Server 2008 operating system. Once I had done that I tried to install Visual Studio 2017, I have tried all versions including community professional and enterprise. All of them show the same error as soon as I run the setup for each one as the image I have posted below.
