  • OK weird.. I installed it again, and this time it worked.

    Looks like a package error, that would be a question for a new thread.


  • Service Provider

    Forked it over to a new thread. Looks like you are all set, though.

    Like a corrupt download.



  • Now I'm getting an error when installing PuTTY

    or not... there is either a problem with the redirection to the download sites, or my ISP.



  • A DNS error could cause that, potentially.



  • While I want to love Chocolatey - every time I use it I run into more and more issue, but I'm not giving up just yet.

    So I'm building myself a new windows 10 machine for the office.

    I pulled up Scott's list of Chocolatey things to install.

    Most of them failed to install one the first try, but often took on the second try. The log doesn't show anything useful.

    Then today I installed LastPass through Chocolatey, installed fine the first time. Then had to do the normal junk to get it to work in IE 11 (disable Enable Protected Mode). Relaunched IE, and now everytime I log into LP it crashes IE.

    So I tried to uninstall LP through

     choco uninstall lastpass
    

    it gave an error I didn't copy. So I went to the control panel and removed it.



  • I'm beginning to wonder if my install is just crap.

    I have a brand new HP EliteDesk 800 G1 SFF that had Windows 7 Pro on it.

    I booted it up, updated all the MS updates, never got the prompt to upgrade to windows 10, so I used my Windows 10 USB stick to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. I did tell it during the install to save nothing.

    Regardless, the system is just running like crap.

    I'm downloading the latest ISO (it was recently updated to a new build for those that don't know) and then going to reinstall from scratch this time.

    You did get that fishy Flash request, too.

    Only when I originally installed Chocolatey on the machine, never again after that.. but then again, I never tried to install it on the machine again. 😉



  • While a bit slow, Installs from Chocolately is going MUCH better this time.

    I like that you can string together installs too.

    It really is super handy for doing "normal" software installs. For those of us that have been managing software like this for like fifteen years, it feels so crazy doing it on Windows without a tool like this.



  • There is NiNite, not sure how long it's been around?



  • yeah, you've had that whole store-like options for what seems like ever.

    Yup. Store link and also the command line super simple management. iOS has a store, but installation and searching is ridiculously hard even still. Even if you know what you want, you cannot always find it and you certainly cannot easily automate it.

    A while now, but not sure if you can create your own repos for that.



  • The IOS store, along with the Google Play/Amazon/Windows stores all suffer that problem.

    Short of getting a direct link to what someone is suggesting for you, it's very likely you'll get the wrong (though infected) thing. 😞

    Yup, not one of them has reached the RPM system of nearly 20 years ago. The amount that they lag the Linux ecosystem is sometimes just mindboggling.

    Windows is the worst. The Metro store has no search at all, no idea how you were supposed to use it. The Windows Phone store was actually nothing but malware. No real apps at all. The entire platform might as well have been designed for malware. It seemed to have no other function. For that reason alone, nothing more needed, I don't see it as a viable device.
