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 https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. 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 https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade visualcppbuildtools -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 visualcppbuildtools -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

Description

Overview

Visual C++ Build Tools 2015 provides the essential tools for building C++ applications and libraries targeting Windows desktop. If you want to build your C++ projects targeting Windows desktop without having Visual Studio installed on your computer, Visual C++ Build Tools 2015 provides the requisite C++ compilers, libraries, build scripts, and Windows SDKs.

Customizations

You can customize the installation either by adding optional available features or by specifying own installation configuration file.

Adding optional features

Optional features (Phone tools, etc.) are available but not installed by default.
You can provide optional parameters to include them during the install.
Here is example that includes the Android and iOS build tools:

choco install VisualCppBuildTools -packageParameters "--Features Win81SDK_CppBuildSKUV1,Win10_EmulatorV1"
Available features: see AdminDeployment.xml

Using own configuration file

Specifying the optional features above modifies the configuration file used during installation (AdminDeployment.xml). If that is not enough you can provide this file on your own.
Example:

choco install VisualCppBuildTools -packageParameters "--AdminFile c:\path to your\AdminDeployment.xml"
choco install VisualCppBuildTools -packageParameters "--AdminFile http://path/to/your/AdminDeployment.xml"
