F:\xzc\Texlive\texlive2018-20180414\install-tl: Goodbye.

I tried to search for the solutions on Google, but all of the ways are not effective. Many people said that i should add C:\Windows\System32 to the system variable path, but i tried and found that it doesn't make any difference on my computer. I have no choice but to report this bug to you and i strongly hope that you can give me a little help to address the problems with your professional knowledge and experience. Thank you for your time!
