The resolution to solve this error includes the following: 

1) Go here to download and run "Microsoft's Install and Uninstall Troubleshooter"

    a) Go through the wizard to uninstall and remove only the "MapMarkerUSADataTomTom" installation. 

2) Go to the MapMarker Data TomTom default directory, ie:
 C:\Program Files (x86)\MapInfo\MapMarker_USA_Data\TomTom

     a) Delete all files found in TomTom folder.

3)    Navigate to the MapMarker TomTom Geocoding Database zipped file; if downloaded, ie "KGD******.zip".

     a) Unzip the TomTom Geocoding DB (database) files: "KGD******.zip".

4)    Once unzipped to a folder, run the MapMarkerUSATomTomSetup.exe in that folder to install the data. Use the default paths which will match or point to the same location for the data used if the default path was not chosen.
5)   Once the Data is installed successfully, test MapMarker by starting the program.

NOTE: another possible cause of this error for a MapMarker Server installation would be that the
MapMarker Tomcat Service needs to be stopped before the Data install can be run.....
User's can go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools>Services to stop and re-start the Service
