Cannot Install Prism4 on XP

I downloaded Prismv4.exe on my XP pro(32bit) machine. In the explorer, when I run this file, it does nothing. I also noted that previous drops had this problem which was later rectified. Can anyone throw some light on it. Apparently this issue is only on XP.

 

Thanks.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

Link was useful but it did not work for me; but it hinted at the problem. I ended up doing the following and that made it work:
