OK, I have re-synch'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 ?
