Cause:
This is an Install Anywhere issue that engineering is working to fix in the newer releases.
Resolution:
Currently, there is a workaround which is the following:

1. Download the Java 7 server JRE (the 64 bit one, without the installer - e.g. the one with *.tar.gz)
2. Unzip/Untar it on the server
3. Run the installer with the following command: CA Application Lifecycle Conductor Server-30-Setup.exe LAX_VM /bin/java.exe
Once you've installed the server and client, you can delete the Java 7 folder.
