Is there a way in Windows to prevent the first run that auto-executes after you install?

Set the MSI property PUPPET_AGENT_STARTUP_MODE=Manual during installation. See for more information.

You may want to fix your [link]( as ask seems to fall over on links that have multiple underscores, etc.

It can be escaped if you use [ name of link ] ( actual link) <- markdown
