Topic: Waiting to Download Epic...

I've been trying for weeks to get Epic installed on Dell laptop running Windows 10.

I've already installed Epic on a Mac and a Windows 10 desktop, but for some reason, when I launch the installer on this particular laptop, it gets to a point in the install process where it says "Waiting to download Epic..." and then in hangs forever.

I don't run any third-party virus software.  Windows Defender is on, but I've disabled it to try the install with no luck.

Any thoughts?
