Hi Norbert,
Again thank you for replying me. Now I and @yihui have some plans on repacking the file we are going to download at runtime using `tlmgr` and also to avoid those weird popups.(You already told a fix for me thank you). Once we have repacked(planning to use Github Action) it we would just install that file and add those to paths and that would do the full thing. Also, it was because of your discussion I and also @yihui could come to know that we can repack it.

@yihui told me that when I first asked why didn't you pack the contents of TinyTex and also on reading the license file I was also like him.

One day, we should have a Chocolatey Package( or scoop( for installing Texlive maybe just like how you did for Debian.

Nice I noticed it. It was around one in 2 days. I wasn't expecting this though.

This should one day be done for Windows also. ;-)

To be frank it just installs the classic `exe
