Where are you downloading tar from? Most likely it's source code you are downloading, no use for you under Windows 2016 Datacenter.

My challenge is that tar seems to be downloadable as a tar...which means I can't install it without having tar.

I've seen posts about Windows 10 having tar in powershell... but its not in Windows 2016 Datacenter ... which is what I have on AWS today... as much as I dislike windows.

How do we get past the circular dependency?
