I am using emacs on windows 7. Emacs is located on a usb on a university computer with no admin access but correctly loads the .emacs file. In my .emacs file I have
(custom-set-variables '(package-archives (quote (("gnu" . "http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/") ("melpa" . "https://melpa.org/packages/"))))) (custom-set-faces)
When I try load package-list I get Failed to download ‘melpa-stable’ archive.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
