Everything Programs Managers & (auto-)Installers

#1 Post by Midas » Fri Feb 15, 2013 9:35 am

A couple of entries in a category ('package managers', as they're called on Linux) that seems to get a fair share of attention...

(Previous entries at viewtopic.php?t=5120, viewtopic.php?t=5271, and viewtopic.php?p=61921#p61921)

Npackd (pronounced "unpacked") is an application store/package manager/marketplace for applications for Windows. It helps you to find and install software, keep your system up-to-date and uninstall it if no longer necessary. [...] There is also a command line based version of Npackd.
Now available in 32 and 64 bit versions, current version (v1.17.9) can be (auto-)installed from the command line with this command:

Code: Select all

> msiexec.exe /qb- /i http://bit.ly/npackdcl-1_17_9

USSU Unlimited helps you to manage and keep your standard Windows applications up-to-date. It gives the possibility to add applications yourself.

I think this one is portable but I do not have time to test at the moment.

For an extensive previous post, courtesy of our mod webfork, please viewtopic.php?t=4029.

This topic wouldn't be complete without a mention of one of the best offers in the category, i.e., Ketarin ('portable', DotNET v2.0 dependent): viewtopic.php?t=5120.

Another recently found offer is Zero Install ('portable', also DotNET v2.0 dependent): viewtopic.php?t=20674.

Old topic update: npackd is still being updated, with latest v1.26.9 released 2020-11-29 (official changelog at https://github.com/npackd/npackd/wiki/ChangeLog).



BTW, previously unmentioned (at least in this topic) Powershell based (and thus CLI oriented) Scoop (https://scoop.sh/) has been my favorite package manager for Windows, mainly because it consistently favors portable software.
