Uninstall of tentacle with chocolatey doesn't do anything

(Warren Rumak) #1

Hi all,

Just noticed that doing a “cuninst chocolatey.tentacle” doesn’t seem to do anything.
It would be pretty great if the chocolatey packages had a chocolateyUninstall.ps1 that calls the MSI uninstaller.

Here’s an example of a ps1 file from dotTrace’s chocolatey package for reference:

Hi Warren,

Thanks for getting in touch! We’ll try to address this in the future when we update the Chocolatey package.

Hey Paul,

Has this update been made? I would like to use chocolatey to deploy the tentacle on servers (we use chocolatey for most everything else).

Hi Erick,

Thanks for getting in touch! Are you having any troubles with chocolatey installing Tentacle or are you after confirmation that uninstall will work for when you need it?

Hey Vanessa,

It’s more the latter. We are looking at various DSC configuration systems (e.g., Chef), so having a clean uninstall is fairly important.

Hi Erick,

Thanks for confirming, I have created a GitHub issue which you can track here: https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/1692
