DirectX Web Installer failed?

Direct X web installer failed to install in windows 7 ultimate?
"An internal system error occurred. Please refer to DXError.log and DirectX.log in your windows folder to determine the problem." I can't find these in my windows folder

What was the reason of me trying to install the web installer well it was because i wanted to play my new game fallout3 and that came with a error " THE PROGRAM CAN'T START BECAUSE XINPUT1_3.DLL IS MISSING FROM YOUR COMPUTER. TRY REINSTALLING THE PROGRAM TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. and from doing some googling i have not found any solution just a bunch of contradictions.

I am hoping someone can help me out windows 7 has been a night mare for me

alpha why not the June redistributable ?

Download details: DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010)

HeadsUp if it helps any it isn't you, the web installer has been buggy for a lot of people for a long time. It either works or it doesn't (I've had it work one update, and not the next over the years).
