Re: Internet connectivity -- CountryData

Even after upgrading to Mathematica 7.0.1.0, 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.
