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 scilab -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 scilab -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

Scilab is free and open source software for numerical computation providing a powerful computing environment for engineering and
scientific applications.

Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions. It has a high level programming language allowing access to advanced data
structures, 2-D and 3-D graphical functions.


  • Maths and Simulation for usual engineering and science applications including mathematical operations and data analysis.
  • 2-D and 3-D Visualization graphics functions to visualize, annotate and export data and many ways to create and customize various types of plots and charts.
  • Optimization algorithms to solve constrained and unconstrained continuous and discrete optimization problems.
  • Statistics tools to perform data analysis and modeling.
  • Control System Design and Analyse standard algorithms and tools for control system study.
  • Signal Processing to visualize, analyze and filter signals in time and frequency domains.
  • Application Development to increase Scilab native functionalities and manage data exchanges with external tools.
  • Xcos - Hybrid dynamic systems modeler and simulator for modeling mechanical systems, hydraulic circuits, control systems...

Scilab as a platform

Thanks to its ability to interconnect with third-party technologies
and applications, Scilab can also act as a unique platform to bring
together codes written in different programming languages in a single,
unified language, thus facilitating their distribution, their back-up and use.

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.
