Hi there!
I tried to install the engine (twice) and only got this bug report:

A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

It’s by definition not possible for a pure Java program to cause the
JRE to crash like this unless there’s a bug in the JRE or something on
your machine is corrupt.

Have you tried reinstalling Java?
