I downloaded and run the file install-tl-windows.exe, but after hours later I received this error:

Error; for better info unpack, then run install-tl-windows.bat or install-tl-advanced.bat.

Now I do not know what went wrong. What should I do now?

The texlive folder in C:\ is 5.20 GB. I am running windows 10

I am attaching the snapshot of error and install-tl.log file

enter image description here

    If you can start tlmgr in the new installation try to find the problematic package and reinstall it. Otherwise you have to reinstall TeX Live. Hint: Use the advanced installer and install the minimal scheme first (later on you can use tlmgr to install the rest, that's more stable). – TeXnician May 1 '18 at 12:32

  • Could you please post the installation log so that we can see where the error is? – TeXnician May 1 '18 at 15:19

Downloading the install-tl.zip file and running the install-tl-advanced.bat with admin rights did the trick for me.
