I need to install Windows Live Essentials on Windows 7 64-bit. I'm behind the company proxy but in Internet Options everything is set up to work with the proxy.

When I start the setup file: wlsetup-web.exe it says it can't connect but there is no option to tell it what the proxy is. Our sysadmin configures everything in Internet Options/Connections.

How can I install Windows Live Essentials 2011 from behind a proxy?

You may try the full-setup from here to install it without using the internet during the setup.

do you happen to have a non german version? Maybe english or italian? – dierre Sep 7 '11 at 12:55
I am sorry for this, I thought the installer was a multi language one. I updated the link to a better page. – Michael K Sep 7 '11 at 13:00
