This sort of problem is going to be painful to diagnose. I'd suggest:
  1. Start with a fresh Win7 VM;
  2. Open dcomcnfg, and look at the various settings under "My Computer ⇒ Properties ⇒ COM Security";
  3. Install the application;
  4. Look at the COM Security settings again, and try to work out what's changed;
  5. Upgrade to Win10;
  6. Look at the COM Security settings again, and compare to the values from before the upgrade;
    (You might need to do this from a remote PC if you can't open dcomcnfg on the upgraded box.)

Alternatively, you could use something like Process Monitor[^] to monitor the installation to see what it's doing.
