I'm not entirely sure why that would occur, although I will provide a single suggestion. Try running the installer with administrative privileges, (i.e Right-click the installer and choose Run as Administrator from the context menu). I've found that this
typically resolves 90% or more of installation-related issues.
According to this related discussion in the Oracle Forums, the error you mentioned can generally be caused by an overly long installation path as well.

Not seen that error either on over 100 Oracle installs...
but I agree with other input... I keep my PATH statement cleaned up of junk entries made by other programs to make room for Oracle home directory information.
