I downloaded Net Installer from website, both 32bit and 64bit, downloaded complete MikTeX, started the wizard again but the moment I select Install MikTex and press Next wizard closes.

Does anyone know whats going on? I get no errors, setup just closes itself. Happens both with 32bit and 64 installer.

  • Hi and welcome. Disable your antivirus during installation. The native Windows antivirus will activate and will not interfere with the installation of MikTeX. – AndréC Aug 2 '20 at 18:56

I found the problem. Once all the MiKTeX files are downloaded, check inside the containing folder. There will be a new identical installer. Run it and this time it will work.

Just look inside the folder where you downloaded your MikTeX files, you will find the installer as setup-4.0-x64, identical to the one you downloaded from the MiKTeX page. Or in case it doesn't exist, you can simply try dragging the installer to the folder.
