Windows 10: PowerShell PackageManagement (OneGet) - Install Apps from Command Line
Thanks! That will help a whole lot.
Do I need to install Chocolatey first?
Well, I've made a mell of a hess of things, so, what do I do now?
Can I close everything out and start over, or do I need to delete what I've started?
You don't have to delete anything. Yes, Chocolatey must be added with Get-PackageProvider Chocolatey before you can start installing softwware.
One more question . . . I've installed Chocolatey. Will that have stayed installed?
Also, I'm pretty sure I've left unrestricted on. So I don't have to do that again?
Oh, and BTW, I was hoping you were asleep and I'd have to wait until tomorrow. Not that I want to wait; everyone needs to sleep every so often.
Chocolatey only needs to be installed once.
Your C: drive should now have a very small folder Chocolatey on root of it. The folder will always remain very small taking almost no space, containing one subfolder Lib in which you find again a subfolder for each installed package. These folders only contain about 5 KB information (library files) OneGet needed when the package was installed. You can delete everything in Lib folder but leave Lib itself and its parent folder Chocolatey intact for future need, Chocolatey needs them.
You can always when you want to check your executionpolicy with cmdlet Get-ExecutionPolicy, and if preferred change it back to Restricted with Set-Executionpolicy Restricted.
Thanks again, Kari. I'm watching the video again. I've read the instructions and watched the video once, and it really clarifies matters for me.
Ummm, it was a shock to hear a voice other than yours!
IdiditIdiditIdiditIdiditIdiditIdiditIdiditIdiditIdiditIdiditIdiditIdidit! I have installed VLC through OneGet!
Thank you, Kari, for holding my hand through this! I really appreciate it!
And you didn't think you'd get so easily, did you?
