solC does not install on Windows

Hi all

I finally managed to install geth on Windows. That part is running smoothly so far. Now I'd like to write and compile my first contract. Following the tutorial (https://www.ethereum.org/greeter) I am failing at the step of installing solC (I tried with admin and normal account both in normal cmd and power shell, the result is always the same):

C:\Windows\system32>cinst -pre solC-stable
Installing the following packages:
solC-stable
By installing you accept licenses for the packages.
solC-stable not installed. The package was not found with the source(s) listed.
If you specified a particular version and are receiving this message, it is pos
sible that the package name exists but the version does not.
Version: ""
Source(s): "https://chocolatey.org/api/v2/"

Chocolatey installed 0/1 package(s). 1 package(s) failed.
See the log for details (C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\logs\chocolatey.log).
Failures:
- solC-stable

I installed the latest chocolatey, since I was also just today installing geth I assume that part is also up to date. I'd be grateful for any help.

for completion here the log file:
