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 precode.wlw -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 precode.wlw -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

PreCode - A code snippet plugin for Windows Live Writer with support for Syntaxhighlighter as well as good support for snippet indentation.

Updated Windows Live Writer plugin supports Syntaxhighlighter 2.0 and will add the required code class attributes when selected. This release supports SyntaxHighlighter 2.0. Note: Do NOT install this version unless you are ready to update your site to SyntaxHighlighter 2.0. Stay with the version 3.0.0 msi installer until you do. This release only supports SyntaxHighlighter 2.0 (although Alex has included scripts for legacy support for previous code postings).

Now includes a standalone Windows desktop application so that you can paste formatted code snippets into other applications as well. Ideal for since the indentation options can be used to create a 4 space indent (CTRL-A to select all - and then >> to indent).
