Hi Adam,

could you please report this issue on https://bugreports.qt.io so 
progress can be tracked there? Project "Qt Creator", Component "Installer".

As a workaround, please:
1. Install Creator on a machine _with_ internet connection.
2. Copy the file %appdata%\Qt\qtaccount.ini from that machine to the 
same directory on the machine _without_ internet connection.
3. Start the installer on the machine _without_ internet connection.

I hope this helps. Sorry for the inconvenience.
