      Description

      Currently,

      The package resource type for windows does not include the http url as a valid value.

      windows
       
      Windows package management.
       
      This provider supports either MSI or self-extracting executable installers.
       
      This provider requires a source attribute when installing the package. It accepts paths to local files, mapped drives, or UNC paths.
       
      This provider supports the install_options and uninstall_options attributes, which allow command-line flags to be passed to the installer. These options should be specified as a string (e.g. ‘–flag’), a hash (e.g. {‘–flag’ => ‘value’}), or an array where each element is either a string or a hash.
       
      If the executable requires special arguments to perform a silent install or uninstall, then the appropriate arguments should be specified using the install_options or uninstall_options attributes, respectively. Puppet will automatically quote any option that contains spaces.
       
      Default for operatingsystem == windows.
      Supported features: install_options, installable, uninstall_options, uninstallable, versionable.
      

      Many windows users that use puppet to install tools with large binaries have the need to install software without downloading the file locally or have a specific UNC path for it.

      using file -> package is not an option since i don't really care about the file but i care about the package to be installed.
