      Description

      Windows packages contain fundamentally different file structures than the packages for all the other projects. We need to update the agent project to install everything to consistent structures between linux and windows.

       

      Most of the difference lies in installing everything under the directory where we have puppet.

       

      This work should be done on the agent#master branch only

       

      This work will require acceptance tests for upgrades. We need to ensure upgrades and downgrades between puppet 5 and 6 work smoothly on windows.
