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 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 conemu -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 conemu -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

ConEmu-Maximus5 (short for Console Emulator) is a handy and full featured Windows console window (local terminal) with a lot of enhancements: panes, tabs, tasks, jump lists, quake style, handy text and block selection, handy paste of paths in either Unix or Windows notation, and much more.

ConEmu may work as either standalone window, or embeddable console control. And it may host two types of applications:

  • ‘console’: cmd, powershell, Far Manager, bash, and many others;
  • ‘graphical’ (GUI): Notepad, PuTTY, GVim, mintty and so on.

Short list of features:

  • predefined and user-defined tasks for different shells;
  • user friendly text and block selection and paste;
  • smooth and friendly window resizing;
  • Windows 7 Jump Lists and Progress on Taskbar buttons;
  • DosBox integration: run old DOS applications (games) in modern OS;
  • quake-style and full screen window modes;
  • ANSI sequences and Xterm 256 colors;
  • cursor: standard console (horizontal) or GUI (vertical);
  • customizable starting tabs;
  • Far Manager integration: drag-n-drop, tabs, truecolor, thumbnails;
  • unicode and CJK support;
  • explore much more features on the project site.

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.
