I had the same problem:
----
The file "fileset.base\Mods\Core.SC2Mod\Index.SC2Locale " in archive "<any>" could not be opened, because an error 2 occurred. If this problem persists, please contact Blizzard Technical Support. (MPQFile::OpenFromArchive)

I found a workaround that allowed me to get the Starcraft 2 digital download install to work on my Windows 7 64-bit computer:

The problem is that it requires a seperate non Windows 7 computer to get working.

===============
Disclamer:
This is a totally unsupported workaround. I take no responsibilty for any problems or loss of data that occur by following this. I'm posting to show an option. I know I would have liked to find something like this when I was trying to get SC2 installed for the last couple of days.

===============

The scenario:
0. I have a Windows 7 64-bit computer
1. Bought the digital copy of the game (might be same issue for DVD version)
2. Downloaded the StarCraft_2_EU_en-GB.exe from my battle.net account link
3. Started StarCraft_2_EU_en-GB.exe and downloaded all 7GB of files
4. Run the installer.exe and got the following error all the time at 1% :
The file "fileset.base\Mods\Core.SC2Mod\Index.SC2Locale " in archive "<any>" could not be opened, because an error 2 occurred. If this problem persists, please contact Blizzard Technical Support. (MPQFile::OpenFromArchive)

5. Re-downloaded the files 4 times, each time to different disks. Tried installing onto different disks, C:, D:, E:, G: etc. They all failed with the same problem. This lead me to believe that it was not a problem with the installation files.

6. Verified this by copying the exact same installation files to a virtual Windows XP machine. Here the installation worked without problems.

7. For one reason or another the installation won't work on my Windows 7 64-bit machine. I tried all the suggestions with booting into "Safe Mode with networking" and logging in or running as administrator. None helped.

Hopefully there is a better workaround or fix than I post below but this is what I did to get the Starcraft 2 working.

To the workaround:
===============
0. I copied the installation files to the Windows XP machine
1. I installed on E:\Starcraft II\ on the Windows XP machine
2. It autostarted after that, I let it run to patch itself.
3. I shut the launcher down, didnt start the game or logged in.
4. Copied E:\Starcraft II\ from WinXP to C:\Starcraft II\ on my Windows 7 machine
5. Copied the following registry entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Blizzard Entertaintment\
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Blizzard Entertaintment\

I manually created and copied of all the keys and values under those two.

I changed all registry references from E: to C:

6. Copied C:\Program Files\Common Files\Blizzard Entertainment\StarCraft II from Windows XP to Windows 7 machine.

7. Copied C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\StarCraft II to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StarCraft II from Windows XP to Windows 7 machine.

Notice the different path on Windows 7.

8. Edited each startmeny shortcut manually so they pointed to C: instead of E: since I used another folder location on Windows 7.

9. I could start the game on my Windows 7 computer.

I should mentioned I read that someone else solved it by reinstalling Windows 7. This was not an option for me though.
