SQL Server 2012 Install trouble

I am attempting to install the SQL Server Express Xactware. This is my fourth attempt. After starting the install in opens a box labeled Install Setup Files. the download seems to not be able to complete the first of the four tasks, which is Scan for Product Updates. The status reads "In Progress", but that is it. It will sit there for two hours and not progress to the next task. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What version of SQL Server Express?
