Hi everyone.  I think the pretest area is populated with the first build
for TL 2021. See as usual for
details of how to install (unchanged from previous years)

OK, I have rsynch'd the Slovenian mirror into C:\TeX\Live\2021\Pre-test, and unzipped '' to create C:\TeX\Live\2021\Pre-test\install-tl-20210226.  Following the instructions at &, and wishing to install from my local rsynch'd mirror, I have typed (at a CMD prompt)

install-tl-windows -select-repository

which, according to, should "offer to install from local media if available".  It did not.  It offered me only online mirrors.  How do I persuade 'install-tl-windows.bat' to install from local media ?
