Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

You could try to run as an administrator. This should allow the program to bypass network blocks or firewalls that may be blocking it from running.

If that's not the problem you can try checking the version of your OS, if you're using windows you need to be using a 64-bit version. Using a 32-bit version will allow you to download everything but will not run or update anything.

Also, ensure that you have enough storage available for all the files. I know that kind of sounds dumb, but I had an issue similar to this and I noticed I needed to make some space.

The picture they give for the error is very vague with no error code, but I hope this helps!
