NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade sqlite -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade sqlite -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

This package was approved as a trusted package on 20 Jan 2015.


SQLite is a software library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine.


This package installs the DLL (either 32- or 64-bit, depending on your OS bitness) for the SQLite SQL database engine in your system PATH. This package is only needed if you have software that expects the SQLite DLL in the PATH. If you just want to create or manage SQLite databases, install the SQLite Shell instead. A (proprietary, but free for non-commercial use) GUI tool to manage SQLite databases is SQLite Administrator.

$packageName = 'SQLite'
$url = ''
$url64 = ''

try {

    $binRoot = Get-BinRoot
    $instDir = Join-Path $binRoot $packageName

    # Detect if sqlite package uses old/deprecated installation path
    $oldInstDir = Join-Path $env:ChocolateyInstall 'bin'
    $sqliteFiles = @('sqlite3.dll', 'sqlite3.def')
    foreach ($file in $sqliteFiles) {
        $oldFilePath = Join-Path $oldInstDir $file
        if (Test-Path $oldFilePath) {
            $usesOldPath = $true
    if ($usesOldPath) {
        Write-Host $(
            "Old installation directory for $packageName detected ($oldInstDir). " +
            "If you want to use the new installation directory (ChocolateyBinRoot\$packageName), " +
            "remove the sqlite*.dll sqlite*.def files from your old installation " +
            "directory and reinstall this package with the ‘-force’ parameter."

        $instDir = $oldInstDir

    Install-ChocolateyZipPackage $packageName $url $instDir $url64

    if (!($usesOldPath)) {
        Install-ChocolateyPath $instDir 'Machine'

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.
