Why not just update to 7.1.2 and JB with Pangu?

because I don't like ios 7.1.2 and I would rather stick with ios 7.0.4.

Try running the tool as Administrator in Compatibility mode, minimum requirement is xp, sp3

A08 .... Unfortunately it won't help there is an issue with the jailbreak package which gets retrieved. There's a possibility that apple pulled the Will have to wait for evaders to look into it and come up with a solution. They have been informed.

Thanks for the info, Tileron. I guess evad3rs would be looking at iOS 8 rather than focusing on old now-failed jailbreak when 'pangu' is available.

@theycallmered .... I've given you an answer in your post how to use evasion offline ....I recommend updating to ios 7.1.2 and using pangu though.
