Windows Automated Install for Veriblock Nodecore
<#
Veriblock Install Script
Veriblock Telegram KernelPanick
Managed on Github gist https://gist.github.com/gsxryan/20795e55d1e8ef079e42062656cc7eea
Usage:
powershell.exe -executionpolicy bypass "./Install-NodeCore.ps1"}
Purpose:
Write a NodeCore Installation Script (windows)
Copies and installs latest Nodecore suite, and bootstrap blockchain
Assumptions:
-No NodeCore folder exists where you run the script from.
-You cannot install at the root of a directory (Ex: C:\)
-Java is currently a manual installation due to it's many potential incompatibilites with other dependent software that may be on your machine.
You are responsible for verifying compatibility with Java 1.8 x64. We will direct you to the download page if needed.
DISCLAIMER:
While code has been tested in some envrionments, you are responsible for reviewing the code prior to execution and deciding yourself if it's acceptable to run.
