@dragon788 command 'choco install chocolateygui -pre' doesn't provide the version I see when I run chocolateygui code in Visual Studio.
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@TechMinder what version of ChocolateyGUI do you now have installed?
Hitesh
@TechMinder
it seems -pre didn't install pre-release instead it installed the stable version v0.13.2
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
Did you also run the command to add the additional source, as @dragon788 suggested, or, rather, run the single command here:
Hitesh
@TechMinder
I didn't run that command. I ran command provided by @dragon788
let me uninstall and install it again
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@dragon788 provided two commands. One to add the source, and then to run with the -pre flag
did you run the first command?
Hitesh
@TechMinder
This time I am running choco install chocolateygui --source https://www.myget.org/F/chocolateygui/ --pre
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
they are essentially the same thing
Hitesh
@TechMinder
I just ran single command
and it did install pre-release version
@gep13 Thanks, it works now.

@gep13 a quick question, do we have a plan to add a new feature to take user inputs before we install any package. like username and password for specif installer
This should show up based on some additional file in the package for the input. maybe using env variable
I have devexpress package, in order to install it silently, it requires username and password passed in the command line.

@RichiCoder1
@TechMinder At least currently, there's no easy way for us to detect this or to interact with the chocolatey console. So for now, no.
Hitesh
@TechMinder
I have an idea and it may work, but I don't know all the Chocolatey rules. So not sure if my idea is inline with chocolatey design or road map. So here is the idea, if we add a new attribute in nuspec e.g <additionalcommandline user="" password="">. Based on this number of attribute chocolatey UI shows text boxes along with install option. Then if user enters that value before clicking install we can set those value to env variables or some file that installer file(installer.ps1) will be looking into for these values.
@RichiCoder1 do you think it's viable idea?
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@TechMinder it would best to discuss that more broadly than just related to the GUI - additional fields to the nuspec are heavily scrutinized and a much slower process to ratification and implementation, so keep that in mind.
There may be better ways.
keep in mind that Chocolatey is about completely silent installation, so perhaps a way to front load commands to pass package parameters and such to a command would be best if the GUI doesn't already support it
Hitesh
@TechMinder
@ferventcoder you are right, my main focus was on Chocolatey GUI. As it reads nuspecs for all the package details.
I know parsing and many other things may be happening under the hood.
My intention is to get the user inputs which can be passed to the install and uninstall commands/
Also, I am not sure if this is common requirement.
Hitesh
@TechMinder
I am open to contribute for GUI as I know this is written in .NET WPF and I am well verse with it.
Hitesh
@TechMinder
@gep13 @ferventcoder I have noticed that for internal packages ChocolateyGUI shows -1 downloads. Does anyone know how to hide or show proper increments?
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
what is your internal server?
depends on what it provides
if your internal is a file share, that sounds right
Hitesh
@TechMinder
@ferventcoder it's file server.
@ferventcoder Is there any document or link for creating difference package source?
@ferventcoder where do we store the # of downloads information? is it in file or somewhere else?
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@TechMinder you can't in a file server - see https://chocolatey.org/docs/how-to-host-feed
Hitesh
@TechMinder
@ferventcoder Thanks, let me take a look at it.
@ferventcoder does # of downloads work with ProGet? We have ProGet so if it works with ProGet then we can use it.
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
That's a great question for Inedo
HTH
Offhand I'm not sure, and I'm adding some updates to that page
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@RichiCoder1 I've made it quite a ways but I can't seem to get the GUI to use debug/verbose like I've requested
wait...
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
?
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
when it logs it only hits a higher level
asking the question made me realize it might be log4net config
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
Chocolatey's logging is a bit black magic to me I'll admit
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
I've passed through debug/verbose so that the logging would be set correctly
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
@ferventcoder To which one though? Don't forget the service that does 99% of the chatting with Choco is the subprocess.exe
