    Work Around: Please follow the below steps to Remediate the issue.

·         So the workaround that made AppFabric setup succeed on my machine was to define the TEMP user environment variable.Follow the below Screens to Made it possible.

 Right click My Computer->Properties

Click on  Advanced System Settings->Environment Variables.

In the Environment variables->Click on New Under USER variables

      Give the Variable name as TEMP and the Variable value as the pointing to some valid directory on your file system(Give the Whole path of TEMP Directory)

 Clock OK.

Then Run the App Fabric again, this time it should work.

Note: I noticed that the Path should be Not too Long and it should be new Path. 

If you have any issues. Please make a comment!!!!
