Subject Re: Use native tar to unpack? good/bad idea?
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2014 22:42:20 GMT
Windows does not have tar by default. You need to install Git (incl. Git Bash), Cygwin, GnuWin32
or similar. I would not expect any user to have tar installed at all or if so then in any
predictable location or even reachable via PATH.
