Warning: Venting over VSCode Install

I spent a good portion of time coming up with a scripted process to help some colleagues to make the move from the ISE to VSCode. It was hard enough to get some to see the value of PowerShell and now to get them off the PowerShell ISE…

Give them a nice clean install of VSCode with extensions, modules, snippet file, settings…

The install-vscode from PSGallery¬†was a great way to automate it with Build Type, Architecture and include extensions….

Now VSCode prompts you to use a different (User versus System) install. Easy enough to download the file or use from a shared location but I have looked at both and I just don’t see a need for this variation or even the prompt…

Starting over again…
