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 zvirtualdesktop -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 zvirtualdesktop -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

  • Open a file, folder, or URL
  • Copy
  • Paste
  • Toggle Desktop View (a Task View replacement)
  • Toggle zVirtualDesktop Settings
  • Show Window Menu (a handy window context menu)

  • Move Window to Desktop
  • Move Window to Desktop & Follow
  • Pin/Unpin Window
  • Pin/Unpin Application
  • Bring All Windows Here

Below are the default hotkeys for virtual desktops. You can configure these any way you'd like.

Navigate Desktops:
WIN+CTRL+Numpad
WIN+CTRL+NumberKeys
WIN+CTRL+LEFT or RIGHT - this is Windows Default and can be overridden to allow "Round Robin"

Move Windows:
The foreground window will be the window which moves
WIN+ALT+Numpad
WIN+ALT+NumberKeys
WIN+ALT+LEFT or RIGHT

Move Window & Follow:
The foreground window will be the window which moves
WIN+CTRL+ALT+Numpad
WIN+CTRL+ALT+NumberKeys
WIN+CTRL+ALT+LEFT or RIGHT

Pin/Unpin Windows:
The foreground window will be the window which is pinned
WIN+ALT+Z

Pin/Unpin Applications:
The foreground window will be the window which is pinned
WIN+ALT+A

What is the difference between pin app and pin window?
An easy way to imagine this is if you use pin window on a chrome browser window,
only that window will be visible on all desktops. Any other chrome windows would
stay on a single desktop. If you were to pin application on a chrome window then
all chrome windows would show up on all desktops. This includes new chrome windows.

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.
