* winget
winget install "The Silver Searcher"
Notes:
- This installs a [release](https://github.com/JFLarvoire/the_silver_searcher/releases) of ag.exe optimized for Windows.
- winget is intended to become the default package manager client for Windows.
As of June 2020, it's still in beta, and can be installed using instructions [there](https://github.com/microsoft/winget-cli).
- The setup script in the Ag's winget package installs ag.exe in the first directory that matches one of these criteria:
1. Over a previous instance of ag.exe *from the same [origin](https://github.com/JFLarvoire/the_silver_searcher)* found in the PATH
2. In the directory defined in environment variable bindir_%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%
3. In the directory defined in environment variable bindir
4. In the directory defined in environment variable windir
* Chocolatey
choco install ag
