I can't read Japanese, but with current CVS HEAD, the IDA Pro
installers fail at the same point in the installer as your screen
shots indicate.

They complain that they cannot create the installation directory.
Might be the same.

I've tried a bunch of things but have found no workaround.
(Your installer doesn't seem like exactly the same though, so you
might try some of them - forward slashes, UNC paths, dunno.)


Also, Wine seems to crash a lot when accessing "My Computer" when
there's more than 3 or 4 items in /dosdevices/.  I wonder if it's
related.  Something fishy is going on.
