I'm not quite sure why the command line installed would not work. I just took a fresh ST2 environment on Win 7 x64 and it seemed to work fine extracting the files into the Package Control folder. If you want to try and debug it you could delete the Package Control folder and run the console command again. The next time you open ST2 you can look at the console and it should mention that it is installed Package Control. My guess is that there will probably be some error after it begins the process.
From the error message you posted after manually downloading the package, it seems like a file permissions issue with running Git to perform a Git fetch. My guess is that your current user for some reason does not have permission to execute git.exe, which is probably stored in C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\. If you right click and select Properties and then go to the Security tab, there will be a list of users and groups that have permissions. On my machine the Users group has the read and execute permission. For git fetch to get executed, one of your packages must be a git repository. Perhaps the permissions on some files in that repository are broken also?
Let me know what you find out!
