    This could be because Appupdater isn't reading the proxy from the registry correctly.

    In particular this is probably not reading the registry settings correctly on x64 systems.

    This is not just a x64 issue, see ID: 3611737. This is probably just a generic crash when a proxy is required but not found. It might not be found because of a .pac or script file or x64 registry key.

    "Appupdater is supposed to detect your proxy settings from the registry.
    Unfortunately this doesn't work if you are using a script (.pac) file for
    configuration, is that your case?"

    No, the users just have to enter proxy settings manually for each application they need (it's a small office).

    Fixed in svn r1047. download_file now catches urllib2.URLError
