Desktop Software 7.1 Install Error

I'm getting the following error when installing the latest Desktop Software onto a new Windows 7 (64 Bit) laptop:

 

"Some of the installation files from the previous versions of the software could not be removed. Make sure that no other application is using these files."

 

Install gets past the point where it creates the desktop shortcut, but then rolls back.

I'm getting exactly the same error on a newly build Windows 7 64bit Dell E6400.

It's never had any Blackberry software installed on it before
