I would like to suggest that when the home page is the means of access to DDG, there be some way deleting the invitation to install DDG. It doesn't hurt anything to leave it up, it is just a tiny bit of clutter that needn't be there.
Use https://start.duckduckgo.com as your home page.

I don't use IE, so I hadn't installed the DDG search until just now, testing what you've reported. I followed the instructions and allowed DDG to be added as a search engine, then selected DDG as my default search engine and it worked as described, total time was <1 minute.

After doing this, DDG won't be listed among your programs, it is just available as a search engine and can be set to be your default search engine for IE.
