    I wonder what is your opinion on using Chocolatey instead?

    Alternatively, we also have a Chocolatey package that can be invoked with choco install bitwarden. This installs the package silently.

    If you take this route, take the opportunity to write down any customizations, and figure out a way to script them using PowerShell. For the applications you like to install, check out Chocolatey, electric, Ninite, PortableApps, and/or the new official Windows package manager (though this may be just Store apps, I've not used it). Maybe script the app installs so you can script the customizations for your apps, too.

    Windows does not ship with a package manager, but Microsoft is working on their package manager winget it's looking promising how ever i ended up using scoop, i tried chocolatey but I didn't like their direction, on the other hand i like how clean and organized scoop is and it's similarity to Linux package managers, i like how scoop keeps all my apps on a single folder so it's very easy to separate core windows apps and components from user apps like so :
  • Create perl setup package | 2021-09-10
    We choose a different packaging method where we rely on a package manager, namely Choco. This is roughly the same idea like the rest of the world already does it. Dependencies are split up along project lines and packages are collected in a repository, but that's an implementation detail that's not relevant to the end user. His installation experience remains about the same - give a single command to install pmol87-myapp-perl or whatever and the rest happens automatically. One could bundle this up in a tiny click-wrap installer (NSIS/Installshield/Wise) to get the best of both.

    My suggestion would be to raise an issue over at and provide the log output that can either be translated or that you've translated to English.

  • [Discussion]What are some less known tools, that you find useful and would like to share?
    On that note, I really like Chocolatey these days. Basically a package manager for windows that allows you to install programs from a single command. I've used on many machines on my home lab for stuff like chrome, npp etc.
  • Very Very Vulnerable.
    You don't have to know anything about managing packages but in all honesty, searching for anything similar to "how to install linux software" is going to show you the software manager "store" or even perhaps the command line package managers. The software install GUIs are very similar to the Microsoft Store experience and the command line version are very similar to Chocolatey (which is obviously where Chocolatey took its inspiration from).
  • Can Streamio be served through package manager(s)? | 2021-08-27
    It's very convenient to have software be installable through package managers such as Chocolatey and Windows Package Manager, and it'd be nice if Streamio were available in one or more of them.
