Did wget move to a package? I use to use setup.exe and search for wget to install it. I don't see it anymore.

The net package is already installed. Both attempts to run wget and locate wget turn up nothing.

wget is in its own package and is still available through setup.exe. You might try a different download site.

it was pointed to a local download of files. I had them re-direct setup.exe to go to the Internet instead... – jcalfee314 May 21 '13 at 19:12
