I am trying to install TeX Live 2021 on my windows 10 computer (x64).

I have downloaded the install-tl.zip archive from https://tug.org/texlive/acquire-netinstall.html

I unzipped it and then ran install-tl-windows.bat as administrator.

After running the standard installation, it fails because I have decompression errors on the packages whose name contains .win32.. Which is strange...

Here is an overview of the logs (for information "Le chemin d'accès spécifié est introuvable" = "The specified access path cannot be found."):

Thanks for your help!

Edit: Actually, the problem also appears for packages whose name does not contain "win32".

  • Do you have some virus protection system which could block the binaries? Feb 7 at 10:21
  • btw: I never install as admin, I simply run the batch file with my normal user account rights. Feb 7 at 10:31
  • @UlrikeFischer I don't have any other anti virus system than the one provided by default with windows.

  • ask on the texlive mailing list. Feb 7 at 10:57
  • Just sending a mail to tex-live@tug.org ?

I finally managed to install Live Tex using the procedure described here:

https://www.tug.org/texlive/acquire-mirror.html

Using Cygwin to create the local mirror. Then unzipping the install-tl.zip archive and executing the install-tl-windows.bat file
