I downloaded and installed it without problems on a 64bit Windows 7 system.
Maybe it is a bizarre glitch on your system, or perhaps it assumes
something is present which is there on my system and missing on yours.
I see that part way through the install it downloads setuptools/pip from
pypi. Did your system have network access?
What happens if you enable the installer log by running:
msiexec /i python-3.4.0rc1.amd64.msi /L*v logfile.txt
Does it put any useful messages in logfile.txt?
