New HP Pavilion with 8.1 blocking LibreOffice

Just got my HP 17 Pavilion running Windows 8.1. Immediately tried to download LibreOffice. It seemed to download but then the Wizard opened and finally said it couldn’t be installed. Is there anything I can do?

Second try did the trick. Don’t know why. I’m probably overly suspicious of anything Microsoft.
Will immediately head to the LibreOffice donation page to send my $10. (Sorry. I’m on Soc.Sec)
