The Windows installer for the 3CX Client. I would recommend avoiding installing on the actual 3CX server.

To install 3CX Client for Windows, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install 3cx

To upgrade 3CX Client for Windows, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade 3cx

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
