I am trying to install texlive on my Windows 7 32 bit PC. Here is what I've done:
Downloaded and extracted install-tl.zip.
Added path to Perl and Wget to my environment variable PATH.
since I am behind a proxy server, I command
set http_proxy=http://username:firstname.lastname@example.org:9090 set https_proxy=https://username:email@example.com:9090
It gives the following "Inappropriate I/O control operation" error, and quits installation:
C:\Users\<user>\Desktop\install-tl-20161124\install-tl: open tlpdb(http://ctan.imsc.
res.in/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb) failed: Inappropriate I/O control operation at C:/Us
ers/AQ/Desktop/install-tl-20161124/tlpkg/TeXLive/TLPDB.pm line 359.
The post here suggests to try a different mirror. I have tried different mirrors by using
--repository option for the
install-tl-advanced.bat command. But the result is same.
A similar issue has also been reported on the texlive mailing list here a couple of months back. But I could not find any solution there.
Can anyone help?
