Even after upgrading to Mathematica 188.8.131.52, the CountryData function does not work. If I run the "Test internet connectivity" button in the Help->Internet Connectivity dialog, the program says it the internet is properly set up. But when I run in the notebook for instance, CountryData["France", "Population"] the program first displays a "Installing data from Wolfram Research data server (0%)" message and then shows CountryData::dlfail: Internet download of data for "CountryData" failed. Use Help > Internet Connectivity... to test or reconfigure internet connectivity. Please help me here, as we need this functionality. Kind regards, Karsten Weinert.
