hardware: Dell laptop
system type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
operating system: Win 10 home
OS build: 18363.815
here's the message I get when starting:
Installing to: C:/program-files/texlive/2020
.\ls-R: The handle is invalid.
Permission denied at
line 592, <STDIN> line 110.
I downloaded and ran the installer last week.
When I examined the logs from my test suite,
I noticed that my texmf-local\ls-R had not been updated.
I went to ...\2020\bin\win32
and ran hexhash.exe as administrator
here's the log:
Cannot open C:/program-files/texlive/texmf-local/ls-R to write.
Cannot open C:/program-files/texlive/2020/texmf-config/ls-R to write.
Cannot open C:/program-files/texlive/2020/texmf-var/ls-R to write.
Cannot open C:/program-files/texlive/2020/texmf-dist/ls-R to write.
note: the various 2020/*/ls-R files were correctly installed and have
correct date+time stamp.
the datestamp on texmf-local/ls-R has not changed from my last updates
earlier in the year.
what I have done:
* searched for ways to run an *.exe, as administrator
: done; reran install
* enabled write permissions for my install folder:
: unable to update read/write permissions for texmf-local
Q: what next?
