Do anyone have the TexLive 2016 installer for Windows? I can't find it on their website.

    why would you want 2016? (you can get an archived version but it is frozen code with no live updates) texlive 2017 has been out for some months. – David Carlisle Sep 23 '17 at 9:28
  • TeXLive 2017 didn't have some math packages, the last time I installed, about two months ago. – SM10 Sep 23 '17 at 9:34

    @SubhajitMishra Which packages? – ChrisS Sep 23 '17 at 9:35
  • I think it was some commutative diagram package in tikz. I exactly don't remember the package name. – SM10 Sep 23 '17 at 9:37

    @SubhajitMishra it is very rare for packages to be withdrawn, unless they are found not to have a valid licence, in which case they can't be used from texlive 2016 either. In any case it makes no sense to backdate all the binaries to unsupported versions just to avoid getting one .sty file from ctan if it is not in the default texlive 2017 install. – David Carlisle Sep 23 '17 at 9:38

Archived versions of texlive between 1996 and 2017 are available from


However there are really very few reasons why you would want to install an obsolete version. It is an archived state with no live updates or bug fixes.
