Miniconda (Python 3)


Package test results are passing.

This package was approved as a trusted package on 7/14/2019.

Conda is a cross-platform, Python-agnostic binary package manager by Continuum.

IMPORTANT: Starting version package will be using same installation approach as parent Anaconda packages. By default, this installation:

  • will not add miniconda python to path,
  • will register miniconda python at default python3
  • will install for all users
  • will install in your $ToolsDir\miniconda3 ($ToolsDir is the path returned by Get-ToolsLocation) default is C:\Tools\

You can provide parameters for the install, per docs at Example: choco install miniconda3 --params="'/AddToPath:1'"

  • /InstallationType:[AllUsers|JustMe]
  • /AddToPath:[0|1]
  • /RegisterPython:[0|1]
  • /D:(installation path)

To install Miniconda (Python 3), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install miniconda3

To upgrade Miniconda (Python 3), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade miniconda3

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.


This package has no dependencies.
