Has anyone installed Texlive 2018 on windows? I follow the official link to download the windows installer. But it in fact shows pictures with 2017 and is interupted by an error due to some mismatch between 2017 and 2018. How should I proceed?

    I installed it on Windows 10 yesterday, from here: tug.org/texlive/acquire-netinstall.html, clicking on install-tl-windows.exe.

    The mismatch is probably your mirror that is not yet up to date. My normal mirror was out of date on Monday and installation gave a similar error. Mirror was up to date, Tuesday... You can check the mirror by visiting it in a browser, under the texlive/tlnet/tlpkg/, the dates there should be at least 30 April. Otherwise use a different mirror

Wait for another day and try again. TeXlive is distributed by a system of mirror servers and after publishing TeXlive 2018 it takes some days to sync all the mirror servers. You simply might have hit a not fully synced server.
