A status code with only the high bit set in the high nibble (e.g. 0x8)
is likely a failure code in the HRESULT [1] domain. 0x007 in the next
3 nibbles (i.e. the facility code) is the Windows API facility (i.e.
FACILITY_WIN32). This tells us that the lower 4 nibbles (16-bit word)
is a Windows system error code [2]. In this case, 0x2EE7 (12007) is
the WinINet error code [3] ERROR_INTERNET_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED, i.e. the
server name could not be resolved. It appears there's an issue with
your network connection or DNS configuration in this context. Try
using the offline executable installer [4], and make sure to clear the
option to install the debug binaries and symbols since those have to
be downloaded.
