I tried —

C:\TeX\Live\2021\Pre-test>runas /user:Administrator" install-tl-windows -select-repository"

and the installer again reported :

"Only single-user install possible.  For an all-users installation, abort now and re-run as administrator

What am I doing wrong ?

I managed to work my way around this by launching "install-tl-windows" from an Administrator CMD prompt, but yet again the installer failed to allow me to select my local repository, offering only online sources as before.  As initially reported, the documentation<https://tug.org/texlive/doc/install-tl.html> clearly says that "install-windows-bat -select-repository" should "offer to install from local media if available", but it does not.  Is this an error in the documentation, or is the installer simply failing to do what it is supposed to do ?
