I have an older (Win 7) computer on which I am trying to install TeX-Live. I have done this a number of times without problems. The computer is old enough to have a DVD reader so I inserted the 2017 DVD from TUG and started the installation process install-tl-windows.bat. It started and then hung up with a message about Perl.exe has stopped working. So I exited and decided to install over the internet, which I had done several times successfully in the past. I downloaded install-tl-windows.exe and ran it. It unpacked files and then stalled on an error message Error: for better info, unpack files and run install-tl-windows.bat. I am at a loss. Any ideas?
