LINQPad lets you interactively query databases in a modern query language: LINQ. LINQPad supports everything in C# 5.0 and Framework 4.x (LINQ to Objects, SQL, EF, XML, Parallel LINQ, etc.). It also supports OData, Azure, and a lot more. LINQPad is also a great way to learn LINQ: it comes loaded with 500 examples from the book, C# 4.0 in a Nutshell. And LINQPad is more than a LINQ tool: it's an ergonomic C#/VB/F# scratchpad that instantly executes any expression, statement block or program with rich output formatting – the ultimate in dynamic development.
This package is the low-impact setup, which creates a desktop shortcut and a file association for .LINQ files.

To install LINQPad, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install linqpad4

To upgrade LINQPad, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade linqpad4

Virus Scan Results

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.
