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 masterpackager -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 masterpackager -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

Our vision is to make application packaging easy, fast and affordable that is accessible to everyone from application packager freelancer, small company and enterprises.

What are the benefits of using Master Packager?

  • Fast - You will never see "not responding" text in the tool. Modifying large MSIs is effortless. The same goes for repackaging
  • High quality - Standardize naming, ICE validation, and .dll/.exe file registration mapping are just a few examples of how this tool will reduce human errors and increases quality.
  • Simple - The user interface allow new and experience packagers to start creating packages immediately
  • Automation - Capturing, building and applying templates can be fully automated, making it possible to fully automate repackaging.
  • Free - Features you need to edit and create MSI and MST files are for Free.
  • Price - We are doing everything to provide the best Price vs. Performance. Providing the same value or better Master Packager can save you money as it can be up 22 times less expensive per license than alternatives.
  • Collaborative - With one click from the tool you can register a bug or make a feature suggestion.
  • Support - We will worry about the tools for you, so you can focus only on the packaging

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.
