grep installs, but dependency file does not, so grep is not functional #2384
installing grep causes a download of both: grep-2.5.4-bin.zip and grep-2.5.4-dep.zip.
Because of this, when trying to run grep, there are pop-ups alerting to error with missing pcre3 and regex2.
Unzipping the .dll files from the dep.zip file to the grep/2.5.4/bin directory in the scoop tree provides a work-around/local solution.
Thanks for the quick response. Didn't even think of trying that, since I just install scoop 2 days ago. I did check for bugs around this area, before reporting, but my search was too narrow. I'm guessing that this was a symptom of the robocopy file handling issue.
Did the: scoop upgrade; scoop uninstall grep; scoop install grep
However, along the way I ran into one that was already reported, and marked as closed: #1935:
So, it claimed a successful update, but then threw an error/warning. For those of us who generally stick with cmd,
No. It does not happen now.
This could have to do with a configuration issue stemming from the original install (although I believe I followed the install instructions precisely). These were some additional symptoms / observations:
So potential root cause path is new install in powershell, followed by some activity installing apps in cmd, followed by scoop upgrade in cmd.
Seems to be a one-time spurious warning, as all seems to be working.

Thanks @kenorb. The error with the inability to find/run 'itcode' has now disappeared from my system. In my case it was a transient error between an install of an early July version, and an upgrade shortly thereafter.
I think this issue can be closed out, as the original problem had an identified root cause that was a bug corrected by the changes on 10 July.
The problem is still there using the latest version of
Here is the demo build.
I my case I had run the original install in powershell (in Windows 10).
I'm OK with this issue being re-titled to focus on the 'itcode' aspect of the problem, rather than the 'grep/multi-package' aspect. Or a new issue can be created. I was just trying to make sure the maintainers weren't caught with trying to solve two different problems under one issue.
