If you are on 2012, I had to do the following format on the drive I wanted to install to. My example is on the D:/
1) Right click on windows icon and click on "Command Prompt (Admin)"
2) Enter : "fsutil 8dot3name set d: 0"
3) Verify the response output:
Successfully enabled 8dot3name generation on d:
**** Make sure your d:/ does not have anything in it prior.
I removed the option during the installation where it runs on a cluster because we do not have an sso cluster.
Apparently openDS can not have spaces in the installation path.
I'm use a path other than the default with no space and installed without problems
