Default No internet connection when installing


I've been using another software that suits me for several years, and I would have liked to test JDownloader2 for the first time as an open source alternative.

I've just downloaded the setup for Windows (JDownloader2_Clean_Installer.exe, 75Ko) on the official website, I've run it several times but each time I get a "No internet connection" error during the process.

Then I looked at my Bitdefender Total Security 2020 firewall and antivirus, which I've also been using for a very long time and which I think I know how to handle, even though I haven't received any blocking notifications. I ended up disabling everything, all protections included (see the screenshot), including items inside Online Threat Prevention. Still the same problem.

So as I have to look elsewhere for the solution, I would like to know if the setup connects to one of the servers contained **External links are only visible to Support Staff**on this page, it's the hosts file I use to block the ads. It's very complete and very efficient, and it's possible that the setup connects to it for an ad network for example.

Also note that every time I had to cancel the setup process, I got these weird characters in the cancellation window, even though I'm sure my PC is healthy.

Thank you
