Unable to install mingw

I was able to install the virtualbox but could not get pass mingw. Here is a screenshot of the installation. I will appreciate some assistance. Thanks

Potential issues:

  1. Corporate network - firewall, proxy
  2. Antivirus
  3. VPN
  4. Slow network

What’s your setup?

Hi @Ochuko_38239,

Any update on this ?

I use a windows 8 laptop. Firewall is turned off. No antivirus installed. Windows defender is disabled. I decided to download the mingw setup file from this site - https://osdn.net/projects/mingw/releases/ and it installed. However, the openssh and rsync failed to download. Here is what I get

As a test:

  1. Open your default web browser
  2. Run the URL from the error message and see if it downloads

If it fails, you should see a more detailed error message

I was able to download the file by running the url in a browser.

I don’t mind downloading all the files that way but I have no idea what to do afterwards. There are 15 of such urls.

Which browser? What is your Default web browser?

Mozilla Firefox

Please share a screenshot to prove this.

Let’s test it out on IE.

Wow! It is working now.

I tried to use IE as you suggested and the download did not work. The site would not even load.

I clicked on tools > Internet Option > Advanced.
Then I checked all the ‘Use SSL’ and ‘Use TLS’ buttons.


Yep that was what I was thinking. 12029 is a TLS error.

Good job!

Thank you very much
