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 carob -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 carob -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

A trivial utility to automatically elevate and run chocolatey ( ).

I, for one, never have an administrative PowerShell open when I want one. It's not the sort of thing I leave open routinely, especially as I can handle most things with functions wrapped around invoke-elevated, and having to remember to open one to run certain commands in mid-flow is, well, annoying. Mucking about with runas, almost as much so.

Unfortunately, since I use chocolatey as my package manager and take full advantage of it, said special occasions crop up more often than I'd like.

Enter carob.

Once it's installed, just use carob in exactly the way you'd use choco. If you aren't currently running in an elevated context, carob elevates for you (with associated UAC prompt) and runs choco elevated for you. If you are, carob simply passes the arguments straight through to choco.

In version >1.1, the chocolatey console output is seamlessly redirected to appear in the current console window; no second window, no need to pause.

Either way, you get what you want, no errors, no retyping, and if you're in the habit of logging your console activity to keep track of what you did, then your choco^Wcarob command line shows up in the right place.

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.
