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

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade nant -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 nant -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

NAnt is a build tool that builds .NET projects and solutions (based on the original Ant for Java). It is also an XML-based "scripting" language where you order "tasks" to do the build work, including the types of things you are talking about--and MUCH, MUCH more!

function get-programfilesdir() {
  if ($ENV:Processor_Architecture -eq "AMD64") {
    (Get-Item "Env:ProgramFiles(x86)").Value
  else {
    (Get-Item "Env:ProgramFiles").Value

$installDir = (get-programfilesdir)
Install-ChocolateyZipPackage 'nant' '' $installDir
Install-ChocolateyPath "$installDir\nant-0.92\bin" 'Machine'

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.
