Answer
success!!!!

so because of pride and stubbornness I took another crack at this after a couple days time and rest Wink
after numerous attempts of things centering around the idea of a corrupted installshield (Idriver.exe is part of installshield) and investigations into the components permissions(Dcom error 740 is acess denied), and attempts of regserver fixes yielding nothing I tried installing in safe mode and got error 1607 from the installer, 1607 and 1628 have one thing in common they both can be caused by a corrupted component somewhere somehow, so I clean reinstalled [its worth noting that this install was one that was updated from 10162 slow beta to 10240 fast then taken out of beta] (backup to hdd, then during install delete all the partitions on the boot drive don't touch your backup drive) installed the mobo drivers, gpu driver, then gpu tweak 2 and it installed.
since then
I have gotten whql windows 10x64 drivers from the manufacturers sites
restored my data
and am working on reinstalling stuff

TL;DR
if you get error 1628 while trying to install anything try installing from safe mode if you get 1607
repeat the process with 2 other versions of the software (to be sure) if they fail then your install is subtly corrupted.
