After more than 2 years not being able to update windows 1809 (windows goes up to 30% of update and rolls back to previous version), got a new disk and installed current windows version. Is there a way to generate chocolatey script to reinstall apps that were in previous installation?

Thanks,

Alex

Nope.

Gotta create it yourself. Just look through your installed app list and find the choco packages that are available for those apps by searching on Chocolatey.

Here are a couple of my startup lists - I update these frequently when I install new apps to try keep them up to date.

choco feature enable -n allowGlobalConfirmation  

# Base
#choco install google-chrome
choco install brave
choco install microsoft-windows-terminal
choco install vscode

# Apps
choco install firefox
choco install filezilla

choco install zoom
choco install dropbox 
choco install authy-desktop

Initializing new computers with a bunch of choco installs is a wonderful idea. I first heard it from you at SWFox. Miss those conferences. Thanks.

Would marketing a conference series on good practices in .NET for VFPers make sense for you? Take a poll.
