Binary in PATH on windows does not have file extension #1754

What version of dep are you using (dep version)?


What dep command did you run?

From the readme: $ curl | sh

What did you expect to see?

dep added to path and runnable through go's exec.Command("dep").

What did you see instead?

The exec command fails because the executable is not found.

I believe this is caused by the install script writing the file in the same way on any os (without .exe on windows).

The exec package uses the PATHEXT environment variable on windows and only looks for executables with those file extensions. Since dep is installed in the path without an extension, is it not found by exec even if it is runnable from the command line.
