Error while Installing Audacity 2.2 and 2.1

Can you tell me why I keep getting this error after the Audacity 2.2 Installer tells me that I have finished the install?

Unable to execute file:
C:Program FilesAudacityaudacity.exe

CreateProcess failed; code 14001.
This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

I have installed and reinstalled Audacity 2.2 on three completely different computers and keep getting the same error. I have taken an Audacity 2.1 install that I downloaded in early August on a working laptop(This install has worked from day one(1) and attempted to install it on the same model laptop running the same OS and I continue to get this error. Can you tell me what I need to do to get this working?

Operating System is Windows XP sp3

Thank you.
