    Hello
    I am trying to install Weather Meter from AddGadget.com.
    The download works OK
    The install fails with:
    Cloud Installer
    "Sorry unable to download file. Connection failed"
    This worked OK on a Vista Machine
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    I re-downloaded 8gadgetpack (8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 8) and chose the repair option.
    I did the install of the Weather Meter from the previously downloaded file and it was successful!

    After the reported success, I experienced another connection failed. An internet search revealed a suggestion to :
    Open Internet Explorer
    Click tools dropdown - upper right
    Insure that Work offline is NOT checked
    Restart computer
    This fixed the problem
    I did not record the source of this fix.
