I recall there was an old dependency for old product - some system lacks of Microsoft* Script, so cannot install old product. Not sure for current product.
Did you use administrator privilege to install the tool? Can you install other product, for example, Intel? Composer XE 2015 without problem?
What is your operation system?
"Did you use administrator privilege to install the tool?" -- Yes, I tried both ways, same result.
"Can you install other product, for example, Intel? Composer XE 2015 without problem?" -- I just tried installing composer. I didn't let it complete but it looked like it was working fine.
"What is your operation system?" -- I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 SP 1 inside Parallels on OS X.

Probably you installed prior composer and it is allowed to install multiple versions of composer...maybe your prior composer works, or some components of current composer installed fine. It was NOT allowed to install multiple vtune versions, installer of vtune will try to uninstall prior vtune, but it will fail if vtune contents are removed manually from system, but tool installation info remained. The idea is to use such installer cleanup tool to find/remove old VTune product info then install new one, if you cannot use "Uninstall a product" from Control Panel.
If you have no problem to install other tools which was never installed before, it is not the vtune problem. Do you have problem to install vtune in other machine?
I've never installed composer before, just vTune. I suspect you're right about the previous version (2013 update 9) of vTune interfering with the installation, but I'm not sure how to fully clean in up. I've used the uninstall option from the control panel and deleted the folder from "c:\program file(x86)\Intel".
Maybe if I can dig up an old 2013 installer

I think it's very unlikely that the registry is corrupted. More likely, some existing (not-corrupted) data in the registry is confusing the installer.
It is hard to say, you may try to use 2013 vesrions' installer to uninstall it first, if it doesn't work, then use the tool to clean up prior product info.
Hello Brock P. - Can you please send me the following:
Entire contents of %TEMP%\pset*

Searching google is not right way to get 2013 version, you have to access https://registrationcenter.intel.com/RegCenter/Register.aspx and login with your registered mail box with password.
https://registrationcenter.intel.com/RegCenter/Download.aspx?productid=2212 is VTune(TM) Amplifier XE product for downloading (if you have registered the product), you can select 2013 version for uninstallation purpose.
