You need to look in the log file mentioned to see what the problem is. It's in your %temp% directory. Either pastebin the whole thing and edit your post with the link, or extract the first error and surrounding text. Thanks –  bcbc Feb 7 '12 at 8:13
    
@bcbc Thank you for such fast reply. I checked that log file but not been able to find the exact error. i am pasting some part of that log file, think you could find the error. *File "\lib\urlgrabber\grabber.py", line 1188, in _make_request URLGrabError: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (7, 'getaddrinfo failed')> 02-07 13:11 ERROR TaskList: Non fatal error [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (7, 'getaddrinfo failed')> in task download 02-07 13:11 DEBUG TaskList: ### Finished download 02-07 13:11 ERROR TaskList: unsubscriptable object Thanks –  Vikram Feb 7 '12 at 11:07
    
It looks like you're not connected to the internet (it failed to download). It's hard to tell exactly from that little snippet so if that doesn't explain it, please edit your question with more info rather than post it as a comment. Thanks –  bcbc Feb 7 '12 at 16:04
