I had exactly the same error and it seems it happens if you want to install a newer version of scrrun.dll over a older version.
This scrrun.dll is very subtle. It can be only updated through clear defined system updates (servicepacks, IE).
In my case (I am working on Win2000, IE5.5), I wanted to install on a Win2000 machine. I got the error you described above. I took a scrrun.dll from a Win2000 machine without servicepacks and with default IE installed.
Now everything works fine on every OS!

You need add condition to component with scrrun.dll

This prevent install this files on PFS.
