I have TL-2012-pretest running on a couple of systems without issues.
I went to do an install today on a winxp box and ran into a problem.
Given that you are about to burn DVDs, I thought I should report it

For reference, it is being installed to  TEXDIR: "C:/apps/texlive/2012"

Along about line 4900 of the log file, I start getting messages like

! I can't find file `dehypht-x-2012-05-30.tex'.
<to be read again>
l.375   \repeat

(Press Enter to retry, or Control-Z to exit)
Please type another input file name:
! Emergency stop.
<to be read again>
l.375   \repeat

No pages of output

Then later (about line 5800) I get this error
Running: "C:\apps\texlive\2012\bin\win32\pdftex" --ini
--jobname=eplain --progname=eplain -translate-file=cp227.tcx
*eplain.ini <nul

The file eplain.fmt was not created due to some errors.
See the log file
C:/apps/texlive/2012/texmf-var/web2c/pdftex/eplain.log for details.

And when I do this, I find at line 66

! I can't find file `dehypht-x-2012-05-30.tex'.
<to be read again>

And then a message at the bottom saying no fmt was generated. Same
issue for several other format files...  The installation is totally

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Best regards,
John Minter
