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 powershell-preview -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 powershell-preview -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

PowerShell Core is the open source multiplatform version of PowerShell

ATTENTION: This is a preview release, use the release version package if you want a stable, supported version.

Preview releases are under a seperate package id so that they can be safely installed and maintained side-by-side with the release versions on production systems.
Preview versions never become the default powershell core edition on a system (unless they are the ONLY edition), if you have a preview version installed, access it via pwsh's '-pre' switch.

This package automatically does verbose MSI logging to %temp%\(packagenameandversion).MsiInstall.log

Some helpful install options (any of them can be combined - delimited by space):

* Any MSI Properties the package responds to can be specified in the same way, even if not documented here.

--install-arguments='"ADD_EXPLORER_CONTEXT_MENU_OPENPOWERSHELL=1"'
Installs a right click context menu to start a PowerShell Core prompt for a specific folder.

--install-arguments='"REGISTER_MANIFEST=1"'
Causes PowerShell Core to deliver logs to Windows Event logs.

--install-arguments='"ENABLE_PSREMOTING=1"'
Enable PS remoting during installation.

--install-arguments='"ADD_EXPLORER_CONTEXT_MENU_OPENPOWERSHELL=1 REGISTER_MANIFEST=1 ENABLE_PSREMOTING=1"'
Do it all.

--packageparameters '"/CleanUpPath"'
Removes all powershell core paths before starting install.  Cleans up old paths from old powershell core MSIs.

tools\Reset-PWSHSystemPath.ps1
<#
.SYNOPSIS
  Idempotently removes extra PowerShell Core paths from the machine, user and/or process environment scope with no reordering.

.DESCRIPTION
  Defaults to machine scope and leaving the last sorted path alone.
  Does not touch path if there is nothing to clean.
  Emits one simple log line about it's actions for each scope.

  Also accessible in the powershell-core Chocolatey package by using -params '"/CleanUpSystemPath"'

.PARAMETER PathScope
  Set of machine scopes to clean up.  Valid options are one or more of: Machine, User, Process.
  Default: machine

.PARAMETER RemoveAllOccurences
  By default the cleanup leaves the highest sorted PowerShell Core path alone.  
  This switch causes it to be cleaned up as well.
  Default: false

.EXAMPLE
  .\Reset-PWSHSystemPath.ps1
  
  Removes all PowerShell core paths but the very last one when sorted in ascending order from the Machine level path.
  Good for running on systems that already has at least one valid PowerShell install.

.EXAMPLE
  .\Reset-PWSHSystemPath.ps1 -RemoveAllOccurences
  
  Removes ALL PowerShell core paths from the Machine level path.
  Good for running right before upgrading PowerShell core.
.EXAMPLE
  .\Reset-PWSHSystemPath.ps1 -PathScope Machine, User, Process

  Removes all paths but the very last one when sorted in ascending order.
  Processes all path scopes including current process.
.EXAMPLE
  .\Reset-PWSHSystemPath.ps1 -PathScope Machine, User, Process -RemoveAllOccurencs

  Removes all paths from all path scopes including current process.

VERIFICATION
Verification is intended to assist the Chocolatey moderators and community
in verifying that this package's contents are trustworthy.

Retrieve the SHA256 value for the specific release MSI you will install from
this page: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/releases

Calculate the SHA256 on the file and compare.

The package also contains and performs the checksum even when it has the source
internally.

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.
