ClickOnce installer fails on Windows 8.1


Just tried to install the latest release from CodePlex (here), but it failed with an exception:
Activation of http://pomodorotaskbar.codeplex.com/downloads/get/clickOnce/Pomodoro.application resulted in exception. Following failure messages were detected:
Exception reading manifest from http://pomodorotaskbar.codeplex.com/downloads/get/clickOnce/Pomodoro.application: the manifest may not be valid or the file could not be opened.
For security reasons DTD is prohibited in this XML document. To enable DTD processing set the DtdProcessing property on XmlReaderSettings to Parse and pass the settings into XmlReader.Create method.
Perhaps some APIs have changed in Windows 8.1? ClickOnce log attached.

seems to work fine now, probably temporary issue

That's weird because I run 8.1 myself and have un/installed the program numerous times without problems. I saw a friend of mine install it yesterday on Win 8.1. Could you please try again? I know I had a few problems with the installer at one time, maybe you cought a bad one...
