  • 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. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade autoruns -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO 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 autoruns -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

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

See what programs are configured to startup automatically when your system boots and you login.
Autoruns also shows you the full list of Registry and file locations where applications can
configure auto-start settings. This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of
auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run
during system bootup or login, and when you start various built-in Windows applications like
Internet Explorer, Explorer and media players. These programs and drivers include ones in your
startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. Autoruns reports Explorer shell
extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and
much more. Autoruns goes way beyond other autostart utilities.

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.
