Resolution

This was due to an older version of PIM/ControlMinder/Access Control having been installed and then uninstalled on this server. The previous uninstall had left HKLM\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\Shared in the registry. 

This key was deleted using regedit and the install went ahead correctly.
