    Hi tejmes-6386,

    when i was downloading files via the installer.

    Do you mean to you choose the Download Media option from setup.exe file to download files?
    Could you please try to download SQL Server 2019 setup file from here?
    Please remember to run the setup.exe file as administrator.

    Best Regards,
