For some reason or the other, when I try to install ConTeXt on my machine (Windows 7 OS), it gives an error as shown below:

enter image description here enter image description here

So I have tried and tried and tried and tried. You get the point. I was wondering if it is possible to just download the files that it is supposed to download and install manually. I am looking at this page but don't know if am in the right place. And if so, how can install it manually; that is, in the correct folders?

NOTE: I have read some of the posts here but I have not reached a solution. By the way, it does not download anything.

  • May be internet problem. It should work. Check your connectivity and internet speed. What is the speed? Also the servers may be down. – user11232 Dec 19 '13 at 2:16
  • @HarishKumar The speed? Hmmm honestly I don't know? Where do I look for that? I can't think right now. – azetina Dec 19 '13 at 2:26
  • You can use some band width meters. google.co.in/… and speedtest.net – user11232 Dec 19 '13 at 2:30

    Are you behind a proxy? Set RSYNC_PROXY=<your proxy here> environment variable. – Zonk Dec 19 '13 at 13:38

    If you do not want ConTeXt-beta, you can also download ConTeXt using texlive. – Aditya Dec 19 '13 at 16:35
