Devbox RapidEE

Package test results have failed.

This package was approved by moderator ferventcoder on 12/27/2014.

Rapid Environment Editor is a command line tool, but it includes easy to use GUI that replaces small and inconvenient Windows environment edit box.
This package always installs the LATEST VERSION available online. Therefore, package version number is marked as 0.0.0
NOTE: Automatic uninstall procedure is included in this package, so you don't need to manually reverse whatever actions installer did.
NOTE: Phrase « Devbox » in a name of this package is used as signature to indicate high quality standards. Functionally, the package is the same as any other Chocolatey package.

To install Devbox RapidEE, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install devbox-rapidee

To upgrade Devbox RapidEE, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
