A choco install list

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/02/03

Sometimes I forget the choco install mnemonics for various tools, so here is a small list below.

Of course you have to start with an administrative command prompt, and have a basic Chocolatey Installation in place.

If you want to clean cruft:

choco install --yes choco-cleaner

Basic install:

choco install --yes 7zip
choco install --yes everything
choco install --yes notepadplusplus
choco install --yes beyondcompare
choco install --yes git.install --params "/GitAndUnixToolsOnPath /NoGitLfs /SChannel /NoAutoCrlf /WindowsTerminal"
choco install --yes hg
choco install --yes sourcetree
choco install --yes sysinternals

For VMs (pic one):

choco install --yes vmware-tools
choco install --yes virtio-drivers

For browsing (not sure yet about Chrome as that one has a non-admin installer as well):

choco install --yes firefox

For file transfer (though be aware that some versions of Filezilla contained adware):

choco install --yes filezilla
choco install --yes winscp

For coding:

choco install --yes vscode
choco install --yes atom

For SQL server:

choco install --yes sql-server-management-studio

For web development / power user:

choco install --yes fiddler

For SOAP and REST:

choco install --yes soapui

If you don’t like manually downloading SequoiaView at gist.github.com/jpluimers/b0df9c2dba49010454ca6df406bc5f3d (e8efd031d667de8a1808d6ea73548d77949e7864.zip):

choco install --yes windirstat

For drawing, image manipulation (paint.net last, as it needs a UI action):

choco install --yes gimp
choco install --yes imagemagick
choco install --yes paint.net

For ISO image mounting in pre Windows 10:

choco install --yes wincdemu

For hard disk management:

choco install --yes hdtune
choco install --yes seatools
choco install --yes speedfan

For Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners (not sure yet this includes PDF support):

choco install --yes scansnapmanager

browser – How to connect a website has only IPv6 address without domain name? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/22

For my link archive: [WayBack] browser – How to connect a website has only IPv6 address without domain name? – Super User (thanks haimg):

According to RFC2732, literal IPv6 addresses should be put inside square brackets in URLs, e.g. like this:

http://[1080:0:0:0:8:800:200C:417A]/index.html

If you also need to specify a port other then 80 to access the server it has to be placed after the closing bracket:

http://[1080:0:0:0:8:800:200C:417A]:8888/index.html

Of course, you have to have end-to-end IPv6 connectivity to that host. E.g. if the server is not inside your own local network, you need to have IPv6 connectivity, either via your ISP (rare), or via some kind of IPv6 in IPv4 encapsulation (tunnel).

Firefox 29 and up: “The connection has timed out”

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/24

A few years ago, Firefox changed the default “network.http.response.timeout” value from zero to 300 seconds (5 minutes).

Display style systems that show refreshing web pages, this can be a problem as when the connection to the web-server is unavailable for more than 5 minutes, then the page will show “The connection has timed out” and stop refreshing.

The solution – apart from fixing each and every connection problem – is to either restore the value or make it very long:

  • network.http.response.timeout=0
  • network.http.response.timeout=30000

Changing this works similarly like in A way to skip the Firefox “Well, this is embarrassing” during a sudden reboot « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff:

  • Open Firefox
  • Type about:config in the addressbar
  • Confirm the
    This might void your warranty!
    by clicking
    I accept the risk!
  • Search for network.http.response.timeout
  • Double click it so the value changes from the default value 0 to the user set value 0
