Download failed after running the installer as administrator

Have unblocked the installer from the firewall, run as administrator, but all it does is say “egads! download failed”. Is this a server issue or do I need to do something on my end? I have tried running the installer after disabling antivirus and firewall, but that didn’t work either.

Thanks in advance
