    Assassin's Creed III unable to install

    After a ridiculously long download time and a bunch of errors I'm now at my wits end with this game. After re-verifying the game for the best part of this afternoon the setup.exe still refuses to install. Something interesting caught my eye in the error log

    Error Code: -5011 : 0x8000ffff
    Error Information:
    >Kernel\ObjectWrapper.cpp (498)
    >Kernel\IScriptWrapper.cpp (80)
    >Kernel\ObjectWrapper.cpp (197)
    >Kernel\IScriptWrapper.cpp (80)
    >SetupNew\setup.cpp (488)
    PAPP:Assassin's Creed (R) III
    PVENDOR:Ubisoft (##ID_STRING202##)
    @Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (7601)
    IE Version: 9.0.8112.16421

    Why is it showing an old version of windows? Its presence on my system is literally impossible
