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 choco-upgrade-all-at -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 choco-upgrade-all-at -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 creates a Windows Scheduled Task to run "choco upgrade all -y" every day at a time that you specify

If you don't specify a time, it defaults to midnight.


You can set the time by running choco install choco-upgrade-all-at --params "'/Time:XX:XX'" where XX:XX equals the "Military Time" to run updates. You must enter four digits and the colon, i.e. enter a leading 0 for times less than 10 AM. Not entering the correct format will fail the install. Please see the examples.


  • choco install choco-upgrade-all-at --params "'/Time:04:00'" - runs choco upgrade all at 4 AM
  • choco install choco-upgrade-all-at --params "'/Time:06:30'" - runs choco upgrade all at 6:30 AM
  • choco install choco-upgrade-all-at --params "'/Time:21:00'" - runs choco upgrade all at 9 PM
  • choco install choco-upgrade-all-at --params "'/Time:23:30'" - runs choco upgrade all at 11:30 PM

If you have a previous release of choco-upgrade-all-at installed, upgrading to a new version will NOT modify your current scheduled task or time.

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).
