Question MOF Error Trying to Install SQL Server Express 2014

I have installed the new Visual Studio.NET Community edition and am now trying to install SQL Server 2014 Express With Tools. Part way through I am getting a MOF syntax error. The only thing I can find on the web relating to this is FIX: "A MOF syntax error occurred" error message occurs when you try to install SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2 but this is referring to SQL Server 2008 and fix 2446036. Naively, I was expecting any required fixes would have been included in one or other of the installation packets, particularly when the web page is referring to SQL Server 2008. I am running a fully updated version of Win8.1 Does anyone have any suggestions?
