Thanks for helping test the windows choco install!

Installation is a three step process. 1/ Open an admin powershall window, 2/ install the chocolatey package manager, and finally, 3/ install a full TidalCycles environment.

Here we go:

1. Open a windows powershell in 'admin' mode. You can do this by holding down the windows key and pressing 'x', then choosing Windows PowerShell (admin) in the menu that pops up 2. If you haven't already got chocolatey installed, install it by pasting in and running this command:

Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))

3. Once that's run, install tidal and all its dependencies by pasting in this command:

choco install tidalcycles --version=1.4.3

You can then [Start tidalcycles and superdirt for the first time] to test it out.

Please let us know how it went, both good and bad! Be sure to send us any error messages you get in full. Either catch us on the tidal-install TOPLAP channel, or you can email alex@slab.org.

Thanks!
