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 chrometana-chrome -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 chrometana-chrome -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

Redirect all Bing (and therefore Cortana) searches to a search engine of your choice!

Recommended by Engadget, CNET, Gizmodo, IBTimes, WIndowsClub and more!

"This handy Chrome extension thwarts Microsoft's attempt to make Bing a thing." - CNET

Bing is an unfortunate thing. Defeat it with Chrometana, allowing for all Bing search requests to redirect to a search engine of your choice. Currently supports Google, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo redirects for all Bing searches, even Cortana ones! Make sure you're using Chrome as your default browser for this to work properly.

PACKAGE NOTES


readme.md
**BCURRAN3'S PACKAGE NOTES:**

* This installs no software. It installs a registry key for the extension (or app) that Chrome will see and then ask you for permission to enable the extension (or app) if you are in Chrome or on the next run. Chrome will install the latest version of the extension (or app). The mentioned version is the version at time of packaging, you can ignore it. Chrome will handle updates to the extension (or app).

Like my [packages](https://chocolatey.org/profiles/bcurran3)?

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.
