Updated by Sebastien Jacquot over 5 years ago


This issue is dedicated to validate the last changes made to support proxy connection 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.
(You can see #1022 for more informations on what has been developed and researches made about this support.)

TXM on Windows can encounter proxy 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

* during next launches of TXM when:

=> user calls the "Check R packages" command
=> user calls the "Check for updates" command
=> user calls the "Add an extension" command

h3. Validation tests
