Can't install Launcher, getting an error message.

Hi, I’m completely new to the game development community, but I’m an avid gamer and I just saw that unreal became free. I’d love to try to get involved and learn how to develop a game, so I decided to download it. When I click download, it will download the installer just fine, but when I run the installer, it consistently gets to “Installing DirectX” and then totally bails on me, and displays an error message that says “there is a problem with this windows installer package. A program run as part of the set up did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.” I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on what is wrong, or what I can do to fix it. Any help would be great, thanks!
