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 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

4. Choose your deployment method:

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

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

Exit $exitCode

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.

Fixed issues

  • Window buttons don't get added to Firefox


  • Windows 2000 is no longer supported, 3.2.0 requires Windows XP SP2 or later, or Server 2003 SP1 or later.
  • If you have configured compatibility settings for 16-bit applications, you'll need to recreate those settings. This is due to a change in how 16-bit applications are handled. Please note that your settings will apply to all 16-bit applications, this was the case previously as well, but the user interface allowed setting up different settings for different 16-bit applications.
  • All binaries (executables and DLL files) are now digitally signed, previously only the setup file was signed.

Fixed issues

  • Multiple entries for the same application shown in application mirroring mode for some applications, for example Windows Media Player and Excel
  • Fatal error in WndExt.cpp at lines 386, 392 and 1894 when running multiple 16-bit applications
  • Fatal error in ButtonRendererVistaComposited.cpp at line 119 when using the PlastiQ Aero theme

  • UltraMon display configuration menu options such as Display Settings and Set Primary don't get disabled if the display control panel is disabled via group policy
  • Smart Taskbar: minimize task via click on task button doesn't behave the same way as on the main taskbar
  • Smart Taskbar doesn't work correctly if the shell process registry entry isn't set or uses a partial path
  • Fatal error in TaskBand.cpp at line 1136 when using Taskbar Shuffle or Taskix to reorder tasks on the UltraMon taskbar
  • Visual Studio 2003 restores to blank window after minimizing via click on task button
  • With the Smart Taskbar enabled, explorer.exe may hang when resuming from hibernation
  • Fatal or runtime error in UltraMonTaskbar.exe when using Stardock theme
  • Smart Taskbar doesn't work when using Aston Shell version 2.0.4 or RES Workspace Manager
  • Fatal error in TaskBand.cpp at line 485
  • Wallpaper manager (UltraMonDesktop.exe) may hang instead of showing an error message when trying to load a corrupted wallpaper profile
  • If a monitor is ignored, it may not be possible to enable another monitor connected to the same video card
  • UltraMon may only show two monitors instead of 3 on Windows 7 when using a docked laptop with 2 external monitors connected
  • Saving icon positions doesn't work if DeskScapes from Stardock is installed
  • Scripting: object browser and script editor Intellisense don't show new methods and properties added in version 2.7.0 of the UltraMon COM objects
  • Scripting: MonCtl.RefreshMonitorLayout crashes on Windows 7 if called before the monitor collection has been created
  • Scripting: setting the MonCtl.SelDisabled property has no effect, and documentation is wrong

Known issues
