YOUR PROBLEM IS: You are trying to install Cubase 6.5 under Windows XP, which is not supported, because Cubase 6.5 is designed for Windows 7. Nevertheless you can install it, and ist seems to work (I had the same (GLC1034.TMP) problem and I just installed it, did not yet try it out extensively but at least I could install it properly now).
HERE IS THE SOLUTION:
Do NOT use the autostart Function of the Installation DVD but click on the "directories" Icon of the Windows Explorer (? in German its called "Ordner") to get the splitted design, where you cann look into the drectory of the DVD. Open the directory "Cubase 6 for Windows" und there click on on setup.exe directly. - And make sure that you habe 8 GB of free diskspace on drive C (which is a challenge :-))) That´s all!
Good luck with this one

Besides - just in case anyone has installation problems with an Emagic Unitor 8 (which almost killed my last nerves last week) get someone who speaks german and visit this site: Midi Interface wird unter Windows XP nicht erkannt hier ist die LÖSUNG. | buenasideas Musik & Foto | Infos Bilder & Klangbeispiele
This is a Windows problem you have to erase some lines in the registry because Windows can only administer 10 midi entries, but creates some garbage lines which block your installation. So keep only the first "midi" entry and erase the mid1 ... to ... mid9 entries as shown on the pictures in the path mentioned under the link.
