The installer executed by this package was built using Inno Setup. For advanced setup scenarios, refer to Inno Setup's command-line interface documentation. Any desired arguments can be appended to (or optionally overriding with the --override-arguments switch) the package's default install arguments with the --install-arguments option.

Installer-specific details (e.g. Setup configuration and supported Languages, Components, and Tasks) can be found in the Inno Setup Script file, which has been extracted using Inno Setup Unpacker and reuploaded for quick reference.

For future upgrade operations, consider opting into Chocolatey's useRememberedArgumentsForUpgrades feature to avoid having to pass the same arguments with each upgrade:

choco feature enable -n=useRememberedArgumentsForUpgrades

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.
