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 visualleakdetector -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 visualleakdetector -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

Visual Leak Detector is a free, robust, open-source memory leak detection system for Visual C++.
It's pretty easy to use. After installing it, you just need to tell Visual C++ where to find the included header and library file.
Then it can be used with any C/C++ project simply by adding the following line to your code:#include vld.h
When you run your program under the Visual Studio debugger, Visual Leak Detector will output a memory leak report at the end of your debugging session.
The leak report includes the full call stack showing how any leaked memory blocks were allocated.
Double-click on a line in the call stack to jump to that file and line in the editor window.
It's a very effective way to quickly diagnose, and fix, memory leaks in C/C++ applications.
The main difference between the CRT Debug Library and VLD, is that Visual Leak Detector shows you the complete callstack used for memory allocation has led to the leak.

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.
