We are trying to install Wordpress through
Microsoft Web Platform Installer 5.0 but getting a 404 error (See below). I assume Microsoft WPI connects to this package:
https://github.com/Leonzhang77/WordPress_Windows_package/blob/master/wordpress-4.9-IIS.zip which does not exist. Any assistance
on how we can update this for successful installation.
DownloadManager Error: 0 : Error while downloading file 'c?raw=true'. Exception: System.Net.WebException: Url 'https://github.com/Leonzhang77/WordPress_Windows_package/blob/master/wordpress-4.9-IIS.zip?raw=true' returned HTTP status

Also experiencing the same issue

Came across this issue last night, and couldn't find any helpful posts. As frustrating as it is, I'm glad I'm not the only one, and am hopeful that the issue will be addressed shortly.

I'm also experiencing the same issue. It seems like the whole GitHub repository that hosted the package has been removed. For now I think it should be possible to just download WordPress from wordpress.org/download and manually install it.

You failed to install wordpress because the wordpress failed to fetch the zip file from remote resource
https://github.com/Leonzhang77/WordPress_Windows_package/blob/master/wordpress-4.9-IIS.zip?raw=true. So it is a completely server side issue. We could not fix this issue at present unless the product team fix it. Please just install and download it manually:

Thank you. All good now, although we did not get to try the re-installation but opted for manual install.
