While installing TeX Live, my system installed all 4032 packages. But in the end, the installation failed. I have no antivirus installed in my system, but still getting this error.

I downloaded the .exe file (install-tl-windows.exe) of 18 MB from https://www.tug.org/texlive/acquire-netinstall.html

Screen shot of installation error!

  • I need help, please suggest what to do next for installation ?? Aug 14 '20 at 10:50

It did not install all packages. Various occurrences of

The system cannot find the path specified.

I suggest trying again. You may have picked a bad moment, while the download site was updating itself.

Otherwise, it might help to go into advanced mode and pick a smaller scheme, such as 'basic scheme'. You can always add the full scheme later.

There is also a command-line option -select-repository which provides a drop-down menu of available mirrors. Some mirrors might have a better connection than others.
