After pressing "Play" button, download start and immediately stop

Possible problems:

Internet Connection
Make sure Minecraft has access to the internet. If it doesn't include Minecraft to "Allow an app or feature through windows firewall" list.
Firewall or Anti-virus
Temporarily disable Windows firewall and/or Anti-virus application. Those could be blocking launcher itself or connection to the internet which could cause problems. If that's the case add launcher to exclusions.
Corrupted Minecraft Files
If you were using other Minecraft launcher before, old files could cause a problem with our launcher (or any other). Try to remove old folder, this should fix all problems. (Before attempting to do this, make sure to backup needed files (e.g. worlds, mods, textures,...). If you're not sure where folder is located use this tutorial: Where is Minecraft Directory?
