I think you are correct.

The FAQ has a relevant entry:

It says:
   If you are using a computer that uses a web proxy and the updater
   is not downloading files, you may need to set the Environmental
   Variable http_proxy to your web proxy.

I believe (but I'm certainly no Windows expert) that this can be set
by hand by digging into Control Panel -> System Properties ->
Environment Variables.  I believe that, when you set a browser to
recognize a proxy, that sets an application-specific registry entry
and not a system-wide one.  That makes it hard for runner to know where
to look for that information.
