Not if you're behind my corporate proxy, unfortunately. I set the HTTPS_PROXY environment variable properly (which is annoying -- other apps are able to deal with the proxy transparently) so that I stop getting 407 errors, and then I get:
info: caused by:  SSL connect error (schannel: next InitializeSecurityContext failed: Unknown error
(0x80092012) - The revocation function was unable to check revocation for the certificate.)
EDIT: I was actually able to workaround this, finally, based on this github desktop issue. It involves registry hackery and disabling cert validation in SCHANNEL which is not ideal (and I will be reverting it once rust is installed). I certainly don't have the mentioned Russian crypto library installed on my machine, so I have no idea what could be ultimately causing cert revocation check to fail on my machine...
