The project is exciting.
The install is a mess...
I gave another try.
First, I see you will install in C:\Yindo. No user choice. Probably no check
if there is enough space.
I hate this! I like to structure the directories of applications, and to
have as little folders at root as possible. And as I have FAT16 with Windows
98 and Windows NT 4, C: is quite cramped...

I go on with the custom install anyway (same result with express install).
It displays a lot of messages too quickly to be readable.
And I end with the following message:

Error while installing Yindo - Experiencing some trouble communicating with - /download/pcinstaller/docs/Yindo_Beta5_0.html

I can open
in my browser...
But I am behind a firewall. Maybe you are using an exotic port.

Of course, you quit the installation without removing the created
directories... Empty, except for the joined log file.
The backup directory is empty too, I just hope the messages about backing up
the OpenGL DLLs are dummy...

Another failed attempt of installation. Maybe I will wait a non beta
