Widevine not installing

I'm trying to view a series on Showtime Anytime (yes, I have a subscription) and I'm asked to download the Widevide Media Optimization plugin. I follow the instructions, try to "run" the application installation, and nothing happens. I tried it using Firefox and it rebooted the browser, but Widevine was not installed. I've tried it on Chrome as well, downloaded it three times, clicked on it in the download window and I don't get an installation window or any prompts. No icons on my desktop to install either. Every time I go back into Showtime Anytime to watch an episode, it tells me I need to download and install Widevine. Is anyone else having this issue?
