I have downloaded the InstallBuilder Professional 15.10.1 from your website.

After the .dmg package is downloaded I click on it and the installbuilder installer.app file is shown I try to click on the .app file and an "are you sure you want to open it" dialog pops up. After I click on open, the installation fails silently and nothing happens.

I have tried the same procedure on a colleague's macbook and it works. other software on my machine work and can be installed also.

Any thoughts on what I am missing ? I am running OSX El Capitan with full admin rights.

Could you try to install it from command line and check if it shows more information about the issue?

 /Volumes/InstallBuilder\ Professional/installbuilder-professional-15.10.1-osx-installer.app/Contents/MacOS/installbuilder.sh

You could also try a text mode installation by using the option --mode text.

The issue was with the /private/tmp folder where permissions were 0755, solved by changing them to 1777.

Thanks alejandror for the hint.
