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 mbruler -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 mbruler -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

MB-Ruler offers several measurement instruments for measuring distances and angles on the screen.

All measurement instruments are displayed in an unobtrusive, almost-transparent layer above all other items on the screen. Therefore, you can integrate its use neatly with other applications while continuing to work with the applications below the MB-Ruler.

Features

  • triangular ruler
  • coordinate system
  • screen cutter (for the easy creation of screen shots)
  • RGB picker
  • screen loupe
  • overlay objects
  • remote interface

The general use of MB-Ruler is very easy. All functions can be accessed through the context menu (right mouse button) of the MB-Ruler Icon in the taskbar. Help on using MB-Ruler can be found here and here.

License

MB-Ruler is freeware for private and non-commercial use.
If you use MB-Ruler in a commercial environment, you must order a license after a test period of 14 days.

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.
