The mirror list is still the regular mirror list and has not been

If you are accessing your rsync repository via a network mapping you
should be aware that the administrator does not necessarily see the
same mappings as a regular user.

Thank you, Siep.  So let me try to simplify my question to the absolute minimum :  given that no network mappings are involved, and that my local "rsynch"d repository is at :


which contains (for example) "install-tl-windows,bat" and "install-tl-windows.exe", and given that I am working within the context of an elevated command prompt, what is the simplest way to be able to verify, with 100% certainty, that the installation will take place from my local repository before allowing the installer to continue ?
