So a user on Windows 7 / 8 installs the Python 3 package (version 3.9), which goes on to download the Python 3.9 installer and tries to install it and exits with a specific exit code? What do they see? It sounds like they just see a 'failed install'?
@pauby@AdmiringWorm The current chocolatey code doesn't allow a user the choice to download the binary regardless of checksum, OS, or network issues.
Chocolatey currently doesn't have any OS specific function to exclude or include packages for a specific OS. Everything is lumped together (ex: Dropbox) this will include packages for certain KB that are installed via chocolatey but are only needed for the test environment or some servers
Chocolatey will detect a users proxy but won't detect server speed. The speed of a download for a package is limited to the third party even if downloaded from the chocolatey cached server.
@RedBaron2 Okay. I'm not understanding the context for this and why the choco issues are being brought up here?
If your network has issues chocolatey will continue to try and download the package until finished our the user closes the shell they are using.
@pauby you mentioned about python 3 and it now but being windows 7 support.
@pauby I'll let you get back to moderating. Have a good day.

Okay, I didn't get the context as that was back at the start of October.
I'd need to dig into that again, but I was left with the impression that more could be done to enhance the user experience.

hey, what is the gitter channel to talk about community packages?
@pauby I have well received your emails wrt. openvpn. Sorry I wasn't able to respect the deadline I proposed in the comment section. Had a domestic incident and lost usage of my right hand. Was busy with medical operation stuff :/ Will check at it since I now have "free" time. Typing at one hand is weird but I'm still managing to code ^^
@wget I'm just getting to this now. I'm sorry to hear about what happened. I hope things improve soon!
Sorry, I can't reproduce the Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.PowerShell.Security, Version=184.108.40.206' or one of its dependencies. and similar errors, I thin it's something with the test environment.

@ericoporto have you tested your package using the test environment?
Érico Vieira Porto
It doesn't match the output I am seeing in the gist file.
Also if I do a rerun I just get a different gist file, most of them just stop at a point without any messages, it's weird because this isn't even installing my package, it's a different package that is my dependency.
@pauby I have working packages for OpenVPN (sill unpublished). I asked a few friends of mine to test them on their Windows fleet, but it is broken on Intune based env. I cannot find the culprit, can I just release them as it in order to avoid again postponing that much expected release?
@wget If they work through Chocolatey and pass the Validator and Verifier I don't see any reason why you wouldn't publish them.
@wget No updates on OpenVPN as yet and no new packages pushed?
