Can't reinstall Dell Wireless 1705 WiFi

Hi,

Few days ago, I hibernated my Inspiron 15 3537 laptop running Windows 8.1 Pro. When I turned it on, the wireless did not work at all, it was like I didn't have the driver. So I downloaded the driver again from here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/Product/inspiron-15-3537?driverId=XHGTY&o...
When I started the installer, it offered me 3 option: repair, modify and remove. I chose remove. It started uninstalling the driver, but it showed me some errors during the process, but unfortunately I can not remember what they said. After that, I tried to install the driver again. The installer always stops at this point:

After this, the installer simply exits.  When I use the 'Update Package' version of the driver, I get this:


And here is the content of the log file:

How can I install the driver again? Should I remove the previous installation somehow?

Thank you!
