4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade spawner -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade spawner -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

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.
