Your network might be blocking WoT.  Make sure that all firewalls allow WoT to go through.

Are you trying to install from an old setup and/or disc? DON'T

With 8.0, a massive amount of data has changed which cannot be handled by the patch subsystem. This requires a complete redownload of the WoT client installation setup and installation from this fresh setup.

Ok Figured it out:  Changed the Wotluancher.cfg file.

was:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- !!!DON'T EDIT, MOVE OR DELETE THIS FILE!!! -->
<info>
<options>default</options>
<launcher_transport>3</launcher_transport>
<torrent_ports_begin>6881</torrent_ports_begin>
<launcher_ver>unknown</launcher_ver>
<client_ver>unknown</client_ver>
<content_ver>unknown</content_ver>
<content_lang>en</content_lang>
<supported_content_langs>en,bg,cs,da,de,en,es,et,fi,fil,fr,hr,hu,id,it,ja,ko,lt,lv,ms,nl,no,pl,pt,pt_br,ro,ru,sr,sv,th,tr,vi,zh_cn,zh_tw</supported_content_langs>
<patch_info_urls>
patch_info_urls>
</info>



changed to:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- !!!DON'T EDIT, MOVE OR DELETE THIS FILE!!! -->
<info>
<options>default</options>
<launcher_transport>3</launcher_transport>
<torrent_ports_begin>6881</torrent_ports_begin>

<patch_info_urls>  <item>http://update.worldoftanks.eu/</item></patch_info_urls>
</info>
