[XeTeX] Problem updating TeXLive in Windows

Following Manuel Pégourié-Gonnard's helpful message of 9 November, I've finally got round to installing the 2008 distribution of XeTeX on a spare computer running Windows XP Pro (jealously guarding my 2007 installation until I'm sure all is OK). Immediately after installation I typed
tlmgr option location http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008
But at the next line of Manuel's instruction, viz.:
tlmgr update bin-texlive texlive.infra
the routine fails, producing the following error message on screen:
Cannot read any package from http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb, seems not to be a TLPDB! Cannot load Tex Live database from http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008
at c:/program Files/texlive/2008/texmf/scripts/texlive/tlmgr.pl line 616
And thus I never get to the third element of Manuel's instructions, viz.:
tlmgr update --all
I've tried it a couple of times, and the same error is produced. Is it a bug, or do I just give up and go over to a Mac? (!) I would certainly like to be able to acquire the latest version painlessly, whenever a new element is added that would be of use to me.
