I'm a wizard at Linux/Unix-based OSes, but I'm rubbish at Windows and the like. To be able to install package via a CLI, which I prefer to graphical installers, I installed Chocolatey onto my Windows XP SP3 system. Wishing to install the Elixir programming language, which I favour to some others, I run
cinst elixir. It succeeded to install Erlang (a dependency for Elixir), but then failed to install Elixir itself. The console error message is as follows:
Exception calling "GetResponse" with "0" argument(s): "The underlying connectio n was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send." At C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\chocolatey\helpers\func tions\Get-WebHeaders.ps1:92 char:37 + $response = $request.GetResponse <<<< (); + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) , ParentContainsErrorRecordE xception + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException The install of elixir was NOT successful. Error while running 'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\chocol atey\lib\Elixir\tools\chocolateyInstall.ps1'. See log for details. Chocolatey installed 0/1 package(s). 1 package(s) failed. See the log for details (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\c hocolatey\logs\chocolatey.log). Failures: - elixir
A pastebin of the log file can be found here.
As I've never used this tool before, I need to know - what am I doing wrong?
