[texhax] MikTex 2.8 and Windows 2.8

Another down load from the Danish site, this time using Internet Explorer:

Windows API error 2: cannot find ... \geometry.tpm

at the very beginning of the install.  A previous download from the same 
site with the same tool came almost to the end of the install before 
reporting a missing file.

I see no consistencies here, other than the simple fact that none of the 
installs work.
