on a new W10 HP Laptop, the 32 bit installation always fails

The outcome is like:

      1 [main] perl 1796 child_info_fork::abort: address space needed by 'Encode.dll' (0x2620000) is already occupied
Can't fork, trying again in 5 seconds at /usr/bin/fmtutil line 73.

Until I have the 32bit running I can not deploy any new package, as the previous W7 is retired.

I've never had this problem with my own 32bit installation on W10, but I just reproduced it by doing a new installation with your list of packages. Have you tried just installing a minimal list of packages that you need for building the packages you maintain?

Alternatively, you might work around the problem by first doing a base install, then installing your texlive-collection-* packages, and then installing everything else. I just tested this with your list of packages, and it worked for me.
