The package doesn't seem to have made it to the site
can you try pushing it again @riezebosch ?

Microsoft and its versioning scheme :cry:
Kim J. Nordmo
@AdmiringWorm
@riezebosch it is just semver v2, you can use au's Get-Version to help you convert it to the one supported by chocolatey
Manuel Riezebosch
@riezebosch
Thanks! I fixed it by using the release version instead of the aspnetcore specific version for channel 3.0 but will rethink of that

Get-Version produces this: 3.0.0-preview9.19424.4 -> 3.0.0-preview9194244, don't know what the impact will be when a new preview is released

Feature request: make the status mail for the approval process a bit more explicit since important messages now are lost in the clutter

@riezebosch can I ask that you raise this as an issue on the GitHub Repository? LIkely chocolatey/chocolatey.org would be the correct place for this

First of all thanks for replying. As I mentioned here and on GitHub #1912. Choco already knows what sources I'm using. I just don't get why I can't force an installation when using a local source. It would be really nice of you if you could take a look at the issue on GitHub. Thank you.

Is the package verifier really working as it ought to be? https://chocolatey.org/packages/ddev/1.11.0-rc1 has been waiting verification for what seems like way longer than normal.
Paul Broadwith
@pauby
@rfay The package was submitted at 18:43 and it was verified at 23:10. I know your message was sent at 22:33 so you wouldn't have known about the verification - it can take a few hours to go through the full cycle.

Hi, If I have a package dependency which fails, how can I tell my package that I ignore error outcomes from this dependencies?
Paul Broadwith
@pauby
@n3rd4i You can't unfortunately. If you don't care whether the dependency is installed or not maybe it shouldn't be a dependency?

@n3rd4i
The recent package changes indicate a reboot is necessary.
 Please reboot at your earliest convenience.

Failures
 - dotnet4.5.2 (exited 5100) - Error while running 'C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\lib\DotNet4.5.2\Tools\ChocolateyInstall.ps1'.
 See log for details.
Sending message 'PostRunMessage' out if there are subscribers...
Exiting with 5100
Exit code was 5100
dotnet4.5.2 gives this error, but since is a lower-level dependency (not my package direct dependency) I get this error while trying to install
of which internet says: 5100: The user's computer does not meet system requirements.
for example, real cause could be: On my system it was due to the fact that a previous (other) setup did require a reboot and I omitted that reboot. After the reboot, the .NET Framework 4 setup succeeded.

@pauby
The important bit is:
The recent package changes indicate a reboot is necessary.
 Please reboot at your earliest convenience.
The user needs to reboot and try the install again. Did you try that?
n3rd4i
@n3rd4i
if you do that it works, but since I need this to be tested in test environment the package fails (hence my problem)
Paul Broadwith
@pauby
Ahh. You didn't mention this was on a package for moderation. Leave a moderation comment at the moderators can pick that up and exempt the package.
n3rd4i
@n3rd4i
oh ok, then I could do that

I see that this choco push failed verification (seems to be a result of network error downloading the package). But choco won't let me re-push the same thing, and I don't see a way to retry verification testing. I can and will build another tag... but I'm betting there's an easier way? https://gist.github.com/choco-bot/6d6b1e84f5c4f2d201c4d4aac73769b9

@rfay you have pushed a prerelease package, that wil automagically be exempted. You can only push a new version when the package is in a submitted state.

Hi - Not sure this is the correct place but hoping someone points me to one, I have nodejs v12.10.0 installed, when I go and install choco install typescript, it tries to install nodejs-lts 10.16.3, and fails. Typescript itself itself however, gets installed.
Edit. Logs say "A later version of Node.js is already installed. Setup will now exit." so the red ERROR in caps is merely a warning. Please ignore me. Thanks.
Randy Fay
@rfay
Thanks @mkevenaar - it was in fact exempted (and also a new tag worked; the network problem didn't recur). But I was worried by the warning "might be broken" or something that users got on the exempted package, and knew that just a re-push would fix it. Anyway, all solved. I guess there was no solution to this one from what you say.

Hi guys, I'm wondering about using AutoHotkey scripts in a Chocolatey package for an installer that doesn't expose some silent command switches. I noticed in the Chocolatey template:

#silentArgs   = ''             # none; make silent with input macro script like AutoHotKey (AHK)
                                 #       https://chocolatey.org/packages/autohotkey.portable
  #validExitCodes= @(0) #please insert other valid exit codes here

just wondering, has anyone actually done this or have some working examples or best practices? I'm familiar with AutoHotkey so I can throw something together but those comments make it feel like Chocolatey might have some built in special integration with Autohotkey or something, thanks!

@tabularasa138
might be a dumb question.. Can I make a choco package that installs other choco packages? Or, is there another way to have like "package-groups" IE. choco install "customer1apps" and it installs like 15 things
Maurice Kevenaar
@mkevenaar
@tabularasa138 yes, just add them as a dependend package.

@tabularasa138
thank you, i'll look that up
