Deployment Method: Individual Install, Upgrade, & Uninstall

To install OpenCV, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To upgrade OpenCV, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To uninstall OpenCV, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


Deployment Method:

📝 NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to

2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • 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 opencv -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 opencv -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

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

Exit $exitCode

This package was approved as a trusted package on 24 Sep 2022.


OpenCV is released under a BSD license and hence it's free for both academic and commercial use. It has C++, C, Python and Java interfaces and supports Windows, Linux, Mac OS, iOS and Android. OpenCV was designed for computational efficiency and with a strong focus on real-time applications. Written in optimized C/C++, the library can take advantage of multi-core processing. Enabled with OpenCL, it can take advantage of the hardware acceleration of the underlying heterogeneous compute platform. Adopted all around the world, OpenCV has more than 47 thousand people of user community and estimated number of downloads exceeding 9 million. Usage ranges from interactive art, to mines inspection, stitching maps on the web or through advanced robotics.

Package Info

This version is from the master branch of development, which is the cutting edge of OpenCV development.

This package installs precompiled OpenCV binaries. This does not allow you to customize the features compiled into your installation. This download is about 225 MB.
If you wish to customize the features compiled in your installation, then you must compile OpenCV yourself. This requires Git and CMake. You can follow the instructions at to build using Microsoft Visual Studio.

Package Parameters

Pass the package argument /InstallationPath to set where OpenCV will unzip itself. Left alone, it will unzip in your Chocolatey Tools directory. Remember, it will always unzip itself to a new folder called \opencv in the directory you chose.
Pass the package argument /Environment to add OpenCV to your user environment variables, which may or may not be necessary. Check the installation guide on OpenCV's website to determine the precise directory structure you want to add to your path. The OPENCV_DIR variable will be created/replaced, and Path will be appended with %OPENCV_DIR%\bin.

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.
