This is not actually Adobe support, this is a user to user forum with the space provided by Adobe (if Adobe staff do post here, it is very rarely)
Here is some information about contacting Adobe... otherwise, you have to wait for some other user with more install knowledge than I have

Exit Code 7 indicates that the installation finished with errors. However, the exit code itself does not indicate the type of error that occurred.
You can visit the link mentioned below to resolve the issue.
Try it and get back if problem still persists.
This solved my install problem. I needed to download the install patch. Note there are 2 solutions: 1) the install patch and 2) download PE 10 trial and enter my serial # to convert to licensed product. Option 2 isn't available anymore; I only seem to find a link for downloading a trial of Premiere 11. Also, the pictures are blank for the description of the install patch solution but fortunately the text description is adequate.
