If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade conemu -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="''" 

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

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.
