Sorry, but we don't directly use threading and don't link with any threading library. It looks like one of the dependencies pull in that library. It's the packager's job to add missing libraries (e.g. as package dependencies).

We are also in no way responsible what eternallybored.org offers. Please report your SSL issue directly there.

wget cannot run out of the box when installed with choco install.
Windows 8.1 Pro x64
 - choco install wget

"libwinpthread-1.dll is missing from your computer"

Originally reported at https://github.com/chocolatey/chocolatey-coreteampackages/issues/1260

installing MinGW after does not fix the issue.

Expected: choco install packages dependencies

Running the binary https://eternallybored.org/misc/wget/1.20.3/64/wget.exe does not have the error , but it also shows "Disabling SSL due to encountered errors." when requesting an https URL (see screenshot).
