Hi Betty,
no, it's quite easy too.  You have to run install-tl.bat.  And then
click on the [Install TeX Live] button.  If this doesn't work, please
provide more information.  Don't be confused about the many options
which allows you to configure the system.  The default values are fine
and you don't have to change anything (except if you prefer letter
size to A4).

But you can ignore this, you can use the "TeX Live Manager" in order
to configure these things later.  It's sufficient to run the installer
and click on the [Install TeX Live] button.

Please explain what you've done and what happened.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
