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 msys2-installer -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 msys2-installer -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

This lightweight package performs an unattended installation of MSYS2 using official installer.
It is intended as an alternative to msys2 and msys2.install packages
which might be a better choice for some users.

Major differences when compared to [MSYS2](https://chocolatey.org/packages/msys2) package:
 - Installation is performed from official `.exe` binaries instead of `.tar.xz` archives
 - Unattended installation only without any additional customization or configuration (not even `pacman --noconfirm -Syuu`)

Major differences when compared to [msys2.install](https://chocolatey.org/packages/msys2.install) package:
 - `msys2.install` package is currently broken and not yet approved
 - Support for unattended uninstall
 - QtInstaller window is visible so that user can track progress and optionally answer MessageBox that is hard to automate (e.g. Corrupt_Installation_Error)

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.
