This would suggest that you have previously installed MikTeX.

Although I do not use Windows 10 myself (I prefer to stick with Windows 
7), I am /certain/ that if TeX Live could /not/ be installed on Windows 
10 we would have heard about this many times over.  As we have not, I 
think it safe to assume that TeX Live /can/ be installed on Windows 10.  
Those more expert than I will have to address your "What did I do wrong ?".
