I'm really sorry. I have no idea why it would attempt to connect to the internet. I never had that problem when I ran the program, and I've run the program on a computer that had an internet connection as well as one that didn't, both of which had the Windows firewall enabled. I never received any errors. Since I'm not a very experienced programmer, the only thing I can come up with is that, maybe, the program uses some feature to which you have an outdated version, and it was attempting to update (but I honestly, highly doubt that; it was just the best explanation I could come up with).
