Error code: S1023 when trying to install DirectX

In trying to install an updated DirectX package from Microsoft for my Windoes 7, this error code came up: S1023.
Since I am a "novice" to computer stuff; is there a "quick fix" for it?

Thanks Himanshu -- this worked for me (remove SP1 VS2010 redistributables temporarily, reinstall the SDK, then put the SP1 ones back). BTW, resinstalling the SP1 VS2010 redistributables replaced the pre-SP1 versions installed by the SDK, so probably the original error message is just misleading and it would work if we just ignored it, but I have not confirmed this personally.
