Many of you know about Ninite – if you don’t, you should!

I use Ninite to install common free utilities in my Windows VM’s. Things like Chrome, Java, PuTTY, .NET, anti-virus, etc. Re-running it will update those same programs.

Once you run the ninite executable, installation is automatic. It won’t install any adware, change your search engine, etc. – it makes the choices you or I would.

I keep the Ninite installer on a network share, and run it occasionally from my Windows VM’s. Simply go to, select the apps you want to install, then download the custom .EXE. It’s free, as in beer.


Happy Tuesday!

– Alec
