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 visualstudio2017-workload-nativedesktop -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 visualstudio2017-workload-nativedesktop -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

Overview

This package adds the Desktop development with C++ workload to an existing installation of Visual Studio 2017 (Enterprise, Professional or Community).

The lists of components included in this workload in respective Visual Studio 2017 products are shown here:

Visual Studio 2017 must be installed first, for example using Chocolatey packages: visualstudio2017enterprise, visualstudio2017professional, visualstudio2017community.

Customizations

The package passes all package parameters to the Visual Studio installer, enabling full customization of the installation. The possible parameters are described here. The package passes --norestart --includeRecommended by default, and --quiet, unless --passive is specified in the package parameters.

By default, the package installs components required by and recommended for the workload. Package parameters can be used to adjust this behavior:

  • --no-includeRecommended - Does not include the recommended components.
  • --includeOptional - Includes the optional components.

By default, the package will detect installed Visual Studio products and add the workload to all products that support it and do not have it installed already.

In order to act on one specific product when several are installed, the product needs to be indicated to the package via parameters, either:

  • --installPath - the path where the product is installed, for example "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise"

or (both are needed):

  • --productId - the identifier of the product, for example "Microsoft.VisualStudio.Product.Enterprise"
  • --channelId - the release channel, should be "VisualStudio.15.Release"

Example 1. Installing the workload on all products, including recommended, but not optional components:

choco install visualstudio2017-workload-nativedesktop

Example 2. Installing the workload on one specific product, including all recommended and optional components:

choco install visualstudio2017-workload-nativedesktop --package-parameters "--productId Microsoft.VisualStudio.Product.Enterprise --channelId VisualStudio.15.Release --includeOptional"

Example 3. Installing the workload on all products, including only required components:

choco install visualstudio2017-workload-nativedesktop --package-parameters "--no-includeRecommended"

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.
