Description

This issue is dedicated to validate the last changes made to support proxy connections during installation and use of TXM on Windows OS including: TXM installation, R installation, TXM RCP update system, R launching and R packages installation/update. It is also dedicated to validate that these changes don't broke direct connections support.
(You can see #1022 for more information on what has been developed and researches done about this support.)

TXM on Windows can encounter network issues at various moments:

  • during first launch of TXM when:
    => welcome page is shown in the TXM/SWT web browser
  • during next launches of TXM when:
    => updates are fetched at start-up
    => user calls the "Check R packages" command (only if the local check show there is a new version of the package)
    => user calls the "Check for updates" command
    => user calls the "Add an extension" command
