Hey, take a gander at the response I just sent to . You'll love it.
Ah. The KBase post makes it sound that way...
That would be a beautiful thing, and it would avoid users' having to run into a brick wall before writing to Support.
Weird. I don't know why anyone wouldn't want a 100% accurate list (more below).
That's partially the point. Hey, why add the extra work for yourself and the user? It'd just be nice to know what's there / not there so we know whether to start developing and testing a script, or instead to write and ask for installation.
If I know at 3pm that I'm going to need a module that's not installed, it'd be best to write to support at that time, rather than having to wait until 3am when I'm ready to start testing... and find out it's not there. (I'm assuming 3am installs don't happen as fast as 3pm installs).
I think the more imprtant point is that the KBase entry is incorrect. Those modules aren't really installed by default... So, if the KBase entry just said what you said above -- that not all machines have all modules listed -- then I wouldn't have had to ask if that's the case (and you wouldn't have had to reply ).
You've proven that (during daylight hours, at least).
Sorry, but I have absolutely no idea why you're offended.
All I asked was what modules are installed, and what modules are listed as being installed when they're not. The KBase item is incorrect, so I just needed clarification. I didn't ask you to do anything but give me information.
Maybe you're having a bad day, eh?
The disclaimer will serve that purpose just fine in the interim... thanks.
I've already got the script up and running. Works like a charm!
