first of are you using an aggressive antivirus?

Have you tried a different mirror, https://ctan.org/mirrors, remember to add systems/texlive/tlnet  to the mirror url (the URL is browsable in a Broswer, if you can find install-tl.zip in the folder, the URL is correct)

Exactly which type of Windows are you using

Subject: [tex-live] Problems with the Tex Live installer - tlperl.win32


I've been trying to install TeX Live for Windows the last two days, and have not been successful. The installer gets going as it should, but when getting the package tlperl.win32, the download stalls, and after a few miutes, the installer fails.
I've been trying many a thing, but it seems, that the file on the CTAN-mirror (http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet/archive/ (I'm in Denmark, if that does any difference)) is severely under load (being able to download it takes almost a minute, when the same is possible within a second with the other packages). Could someone look into this, or just help me out, if I'm missing something here.

Best regards
