DirectX hangs during install

I'm trying to install AutoCAD 2018 on a Windows 10 machine.  It is hanging during the portion of the installation where it's trying to install DirectX.  No error message.  It just says it is installing and never completes.  I have tried disabling antivirus (same results).  I have also tried installing DirectX by itself outside of the AutoCAD installer and it hangs at about 80% of completion.  The same program installs fine on Windows 7.

Please Uninstall your Antivirus first.

you can install your Antivirus after installing AutoCAD.
Retry on a clean win10 vm. I see no reason, why it shouldn't "just work".

The issue was unique to our company and remedied by temporarily disabling the Avecto client.
