    Triple Boot Windows 10 IP Build 17046/Windows Server 2016/Debian Sid

    OneGet whenever I have an opportunity. Over 3,800 applications available (compare to Ninite's less than 100) to be installed without any unwanted additional software, without any "Click this" or "Click Next" or "Do you also want to install this or that software". Install all your software with one command, silently in background. All software downloaded directly from provider, either latest stable version or any other available older version.

    This with a native, built-in Windows 10 tool.

    Mini tutorial:
    1. In an elevated PowerShell, allow running scripts: Set-Executionpolicy Unrestricted
    2. Install Chocolatey package provider: Get-PackageProvider Chocolatey
    3. Install software, for instance Install-Package vlc, FoxitReader, TeamViewer, Malwarebytes, Steam, Skype, Office365HomePremium -Force

    Steps 1 & 2 need to be done only once. Later on you can just open elevated PS and directly install software with Install-Package.

    That's it. The -Force switch at the end automates the installation of the applications listed in Install-Package cmdlet.

    Real glad you turned me on to Chocolatey. As the site says this makes PS almost like a clone of apt-get,zypper or dnf. I nstalled several programs from the site with no incidents.

    Sending this from openSUSE Tumbleweed which dual boots with Windows 10.

    In PS OneGet, this command lets you list available versions of Foxit and select which one to install:
    Code:
    Find-Package FoxitReader -Allversions | Out-GridView -PassThru | Install-Package -Force

    Switch -Allversions lists available versions of given software (green highlight in below screenshot), Out-GridView -Passthru (yellow highlight) sends the list to a selection window. Now select the version you want to install and click OK:

    On another Windows 10 build 14316 machine I just installed the version shown in screenshot, 7.0.6.1126. It works without issues, for me at least

    Does it happen with every pdf?
    Is there something different about some pdfs compared to others (e.g. JavaScript)?

    Thanks for that @Kari - I tried the OneGet solution exactly as you originally posted, but it's not entirely accurate in which version it returns, now confirmed on 2 machines:

    Note, above, it returns version number 7.2.8.1124, below, it says 7.2.8.1125, but the actual download is 7.3.4.311:

    But it's great to know how full featured it is, and I'll get to know it for my next build upgrade clean install, so I can pick up all my treasured utilities in one sweep.

    I'll check out your tutorial. I have questions like:

    How can I view a list of all 3800 packages, in some manageable form, to see what I might want to get?

    Yeah, it is a shame that. OneGet doesn't seem to download latest versions for me so I've reverted to downloading my utilities manually and just sticking them in my onedrive so I can synch them when installing a new build.

    As for your other question you can export the package list to excel as Kari described in his tutorial - get-package | out-gridview for what you have or find-package | out-gridview for everything. You can then copy paste into Excel or whatever you like.

    Like this... Install nuget when prompted if you haven't already.

    Several ways:
    1.) In PowerShell with cmdlet Find-Package | Out-GridView:

    The list cannot be saved locally.

    2.) If you want to save the list on your local computer, the command is Find-Package | Export-CliXML E:\Packages.xml, where E:\Packages.xml is your chosen path and name of the exported list (it will be an XML file).

    This XML file can be opened for instance in Excel, or be opened as grid view list in PowerShell with Import-CliXML E:\Packages.xml | Out-GridView:

    3.) Online at Chocolatey Gallery | Packages

    Notice that both methods 1 and 2 above can be used to install software directly from the list simply by adding the
    -Passthru switch to Out-GridView cmdlet and piping it to Install-Package cmdlet:

    Simply use CTRL key to select multiple packages, click OK when ready to install selected.

    You can also use grid view to list all versions of selected few apps, select your preferred version for each app and install them. In screenshot for instance finding all versions of Chrome, Firefox and Opera browsers and selecting my preferred version of each of them to be installed:

    I am happy to tell and explain more about OneGet but to keep this thread on topic, geeks please post your questions in the tutorial thread: PowerShell OneGet - Install Apps from Command Line - Windows 10 Forums

    Hi there.

    Latest build - found TOO much hassle with security -- reminds me of the old UAC problem in VISTA - almost every program needs some sort of permission before you run it -- and if you want to test a few Server type functions (media, file server, bridge server) it gets too much of a hassle so I'm skipping a few insider builds until it settles down a bit more.

    I'm playing around now with running HYPERVISORS on LINUX hosts -- getting a few Windows VM's running on KVM (Host CENTOS 7).
    If I hose these up -re-installing CENTOS only takes me around 10 - 15 mins anyway. Hoping to retire VMWARE workstation as KVM is 100% free and comes with most common Linux distros. The W10 VM systems I've been playing with are almost as efficient as Bare metal and the passthru works fine.

    (You can also "Para Virtualize" these too -- that increases performance but reduces your build options as you then have to use some Virtual drivers (aka vmware workstation/player vmware tools or vbox additions).

    If you want to try these builds on a Linux VM and learn about HYPERVISORS too I'd suggest playing with this -- great learning tool too. I'd recommend CENTOS as it's based on very successful commercial and STABLE RED HAT but any common distro will work - UBUNTU, OPENSUSE, LINUX MINT etc.

    My idea is that if I'm going to be playing around with development stuff I might as well learn as much as possible while doing it. !!!!!

    @Kari - I've found USB3 passthru and Sound seem to work on KVM -- I never got these to work satisfactory on HYPER-V.

    Here's what my Linux host reports on the Host graphics card -- this passes the sound thru via HDMI to my monitor just fine on a Windows 10 VM.

    Windows 10 (Pro and Insider Pro)

    It is tomorrow already, at least here. No sign of new build. I'm off to watch some old Star Trek series.

    Funny you should say that . . . I just checked, although it's still early evening here. I don't expect it for another 17 or so hours, since that will make it 8:00 AM in Redmond.

    Probably closer to 10amPDT Redmond, 1pm EDT. That's been about the pattern. So, Slovenia, fire up the Calc app!
