    I was starting to lose count of how many times we'd attempted to install SQL 2016 Express with this error message on a New Windows 10 Dell laptop.
    I think it was 4 installs with 2 sets of installer files over 2-3 days.

    Restarting the computer after disabling the 'Unicode TUF-8 Beta' setting and it magically works.
    What a bizarre error.
    Thanks for posting your findings here for others to find.
