Getting installation error

For some reason I can't install source tree on windows 8.

It either does not initiate the install app at all and shows this error: "An error occurred trying to download ''."

Or it starts it and on the first download it gets stuck at 158KB. After a while the installer closes and shows an error log containing this error:


Following errors were detected during this operation.

I have no problem acessing the internet or downloading either through the browser or windows 8 Store apps.
Can anyone help me?
