@ferventcoder
it's helpful to know if it is something local acting weird or not
Hitesh
@TechMinder
@ferventcoder I didn't found any entry in the registry. I tried same approach on at least three different machines, and I got same error on each. I restarted computer and still no changes to environment variable.
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
How are you installing choco?
@TechMinder ^^
Hitesh
@TechMinder
@ferventcoder running batch file as an admin

@ferventcoder ```
CD %UserProfile%\My Documents

SET chocoDir=choco
IF not exist %chocoDir% (mkdir %chocoDir%)

CD %chocoDir%

COPY "\<network path>\choco\choco.exe"

choco.exe install Chocolatey

setx ChocolateyInstall "%UserProfile%\My Documents\choco"

start CMD /k "\<network path>\choco\installgui.bat"```

this is the script.
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
So that explains the issue :+1:
https://chocolatey.org/install - click on more options and see offline script
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@TechMinder ^^

@TechMinder
@ferventcoder thanks for pointing to me right material. I am still trying to understand the issue. My understanding is Choco.exe is standalone executable so it should not matter how the install Chocolatey command is called. Please correct me if I am wrong. The issue with my script is powershell executionpolicy, is that correct?
I am talking about without downloading chocolatey nupkg file.
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
@TechMinder Choco.exe is not standalone. Or at least not completely. It initializes a fair amount of context and settings that must be present for it to work properly.
If you poke inside the nupkg (It's just a zip), you'll notice there's install scripts and tools and helpers and more.
Hitesh
@TechMinder
Thanks @RichiCoder1 , now I got the answer. I will follow the steps defined on the page.
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
:+1: Good luck! If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask (though preferably in chocolatey/choco ;P)
Hitesh
@TechMinder
okay, my goal was to run ChocolateyGUI . so I posted all the questions here. :smile:
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
Absolutely, if you run into Gui specific issues post here.
Hitesh
@TechMinder
Thanks @ferventcoder @RichiCoder1 for help and answering questions.
@RichiCoder1 do we have plan to make choco standalone? It worked for me with extra command to setup environment variable.
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
@TechMinder That's a @ferventcoder question. My understanding is no, but that could change.
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@TechMinder choco is not required to be downloaded, but you do need the chocolateyInstall.ps1 (and other PowerShell scripts in the package) to get it installed properly
@TechMinder if you do it outside of that as standalone (it could work), but we won't consider that a supported scenario. So when new things would be added, you would be broken and that would be in your purview to find and fix. We prefer you do things in a supported manner. HTH
Hitesh
@TechMinder
@ferventcoder I see choco in nupkg. Anyways, thanks for your help. I have already replaced my script with recommended one.
Hitesh
@TechMinder
@ferventcoder just ignore my last question. I got the answer. I must have this package to get choco. then I can run command.
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
perfect. Was just providing insight for both you and anyone that happens across the convo. :D

@EntranceJew
latest version from chocolatey (0.13.2) gives me this crash on startup while getting package list https://hastebin.com/isufeximoz.css
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
@EntranceJew I'll echo the comments in the other thread. Try pre-release :)
Details how are on the github page readme.
EntranceJew
@EntranceJew
that one launches no problem :thumbsup:
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
Glad to hear :). Let us know if you run into any further issues!
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@RichiCoder1 so looking over chocolatey/ChocolateyGUI#438 - it looks good, have you verified it all?
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
@ferventcoder Yup. Gonna tweak two things and merge it
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
@gep13 Random: As of the latest commit, we're not longer having to special case dupFinder. We pass inspection and dup with defaults :)
Hitesh
@TechMinder
@ferventcoder @RichiCoder1 on one of the windows 10 machine, chocolateyGUI throws exception related to .net and wcf pipe.
I am sharing screenshots and chocolatey logs here https://github.com/TechMinder/Shared/blob/master/ChocolateyGUI%20-%20Exception.zip
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
Weird. Will look into it
Hitesh
@TechMinder
Thanks @RichiCoder1
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
@TechMinder Think I found the issue. Verifying and then pushing.
Hitesh
@TechMinder
Thanks @RichiCoder1 , does this fix require re-installation of ChocolateyGUI?
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
It will indeed require updating to the most recent version (of pre-release). I'll have that pushed in about 20 minutes.

Hitesh
@TechMinder
@RichiCoder1 were you able to push the fix?
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
@TechMinder It should have rolled out, yes
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
I still want to do some exploration to make sure it's a solid dependency to take, but I'm thinking about pulling on XamlCSS (https://github.com/warappa/XamlCSS). Thought's @gep13? Channel people?
Xaml's styling is super painful and arguably the area that's bogged me down the most improving Gui
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@RichiCoder1 totally agree that XAML styling is painful
not played with that package though, so can't speak to how good/bad it is
anything would be better that out of the box experience :D
Richard Simpson
@RichiCoder1
Haha, right? I'm going to pull it down and use it to fix a few style issues around GUI just to see if I like it. If it works, and works well, I think I'll pull it it.
