    I believe the SCOOP_HOME is stored ~/.scoop as well
    Marcus Ottosson
    @mottosso
    I found that I need to set both SCOOP_HOME and SCOOP for anything to happen; possibly only one of them but haven't dug deeper just yet. What is their purpose, are they meant for the end-user, or are the meant primarily for debugging?
    I haven't found docs for them, and more oddly haven't found any mention of it in any actual code, other than than the AppVeyor config https://github.com/lukesampson/scoop/search?q=scoop_home&unscoped_q=scoop_home

    @r15ch13
    SCOOP_HOME is only used by the bucket scripts in bin (like checkver.ps1 and auto-pr.ps1, See: https://github.com/ScoopInstaller/Main/tree/master/bin)
    Changing the installation directory is not supported.

    Thanks for confirming @r15ch13, would it be interesting to officially support it?

    Has anyone used this before?

    https://github.com/guitarrapc/ScoopPlaybook

    From what I can discern it seems to be a powershell module that uses scoop and ansible-like yaml configuration files to automate setup?
    Documentation is a bit sparse though

    Ah nevermind, found a treasure trove of roles in here:

    It's looking like Discord is more active than here, will move to there for my next enquiry.

    Hey guys, has anyone tried installing nvm-windows with scoop? After successful installation of nvm-windows I installed latest nodejs LTS version, but when I tried to execute node.exe, powershell told me Program 'node.exe' failed to run: The specified executable is not a valid application for this OS platform.

    why is this interface more intuitive than discord? oh my god, i know how to edit my previous posts on gitter. i still don't know how to do it on discord, its been 2 months.

    @r15ch13
    @trip23app press the up arrow key in discord to edit your last message. or hover over it and click on the small three dots (the same as gitter)

    hey guys, is there a simple way to install oracle jdk 8?
    I've added the java bucket, and found out the oraclejdk-8 is unavailable
    Richard Kuhnt
    @r15ch13
    @kid1412621 oraclejdk is only available behind a login page since April. So it can't be installed via scoop anymore.

    has anyone ever seen that scoop symlinks appear to break after sysprep?
    Ben Moss
    @benmoss
    I think installing them with --global seems to fix the issue, somehow the current directory symlink just disappears when it's in the users directory

    Hi everyone! Can anyone please share their $Env:PATH contents so I can restore my scoop installation? Windows has just reset my user PATH environment variable completely after an update, and I can neither run scoop as it's not on PATH anymore, nor reinstall it from get.scoop.sh as the script says scoop is already installed. :/
    Timur Demin
    @tdemin
    found it, looks like adding %USERPROFILE%\scoop\shims is sufficient
    ChrisJ
    @chrisatx
    does scoop still use the .scoop file? this question was hard for me to find in google search :-)
    Richard Kuhnt
    @r15ch13
    @chrisatx nope, the settings file was moved to %USERPROFILE%\.config\scoop\config.json

    @bkmdev
    nice, a gitter.im channel! :+1: although it'd be nice if there was an equivalent #scoop on freenode.net too :confused:
    Quick question: can one do something like scoop install foo bar baz?
    or does one need to serialize it?
    Richard Kuhnt
    @r15ch13
    @bkmdev there is a discord :D yes you can run the install command like that.
    Brian Miller
    @bkmdev
    @r15ch13 sweet! :+1:

    How do you resolve naming conflicts? For example, I use both gow and sysinternals, and they both have a du.exe. I want the gow one, not the sysinternals one.
    (and the du.exe shim that exists is the sysinternals one)
    Uninstalling and reinstalling gow obviously works, but this breaks as soon as sysinternals updates and snags the du.exe file again. I'm hoping there's a more robust solution.
    Richard Kuhnt
    @r15ch13
    @rwarren scoop reset gow will recreate the shims and the du.exe of sysinternals will be overwritten.

    Hi. I'm new to windows and scoop. I installed nodejs with scoop. scoop install nodejs. But looks like it's not in the path
    What do I do?

    getting new error today any ideas. Updating Scoop...
    fatal: this operation must be run in a work tree
    Update failed.

    I am seeing this effect as well but only if the SCOOP environment variable is set. If I leave it in my %HOME% all works well. Any ideas?

    Attila Strba
    @attilastrba
    The reason is that the worktree variable is set in git config with the latest git version. For me seems to be a git bug created a ticket in github: git-for-windows/git#2569

    @heksesang
    Is there a way to write a manifest without a version attribute and rather just use checkver when you do scoop install my-app?
    Gunnar Lilleaasen
    @heksesang
    Also, how do I know where the various variables are applicable (e.g. $version, $matchHead etc.)? Where does it pull $version from? The documentation on those variables leaves a lot to be desired IMO.

    Does scoop have a "reinstall" command?
    Whenever an install fails I already need to do uninstall, then install. Would be nice to combine both.
