The Microsoft.VC80.MFC assembly is a Microsoft component that is
installed by OpenAFS.   Error 5 is ACCESS_DENIED.

Make sure that the MSI is being executed as "administrator".
If that doesn't solve the problem, a verbose log from msiexec and
Process Monitor log info for msiexec would be useful to identify
what resource is the item on which access is denied.

Access denied can be due to a permission issue or to resource contention.=

Access denied can also be the result of a anti-virus package
blocking the update of an installed Microsoft component.
