According to the screenshot, it is a new XP installation. Directory mentioned in a message suggests that Installer is trying to write into a directory owned by administrator. Are you running the installation as an administrator? If YES, is there enough space on a disk? I suppose so, 45 MB is close to nothing. So the main question is: are you allowed to write in there?

This wouldn't be relevant. To repeat the error mesasge:

Is that directory tree writable, and how much disc space is there? Can you test whether you can create a directory:
mkdir c:\Docume~1\admin~1\locals~1\temp\orainstall2012-01-04_08-05-38PM
