I need to install url-rewrite module (windows server 2008) - while extension starts setup it tries to launch web platform installer- get error:

Unable download the product list from. Check your network connection and ....

I have two installed browsers - IE and FireFox.

In IE there is a proxy which I tried to disable but without success - every time it restores (FireFox allows me to disable proxy). Can the reason for the platform installer failure be in IE settings?

I'd use the standalone installer instead. – squillman Mar 31 '14 at 15:36
