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

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 https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2. 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 https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade virtualclonedrive -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 virtualclonedrive -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

Description

Virtual CloneDrive works and behaves just like a physical CD, DVD, or Blu-ray drive, although it only exists virtually.
Image files can be "inserted" into the virtual drive from your harddisk or from a network drive by just a double-click,
and thus be used like a normal CD, DVD, or Blu-ray. Virtual CloneDrive supports up to 15 virtual drives at the same
time - no matter if the image file contains audio, video or just simple data. Virtual CloneDrive is fully integrated in
Windows Explorer context menus and on top of all it is free!

Features

  • Mounts images as virtual drive
  • Supports all common image formats such as ISO, BIN, IMG, UDF, DVD, and CCD
  • Emulation of CD, DVD, and Blu-ray media
  • Supports up to 15 virtual drives at the same time
  • History of recently mounted images
  • Automount last image
  • Unmount image with eject button
  • Seamless integration in Windows Explorer context menu
  • Easy to use - just double-click an image file to mount as a drive
  • Virtual CloneDrive is freeware, you may use it at no cost

Package Parameters

The following package parameter can be set:

  • /AddToDesktop - this puts a shortcut on your desktop to configure Virtual CloneDrive.

This parameter can be passed to the installer with the use of --params.
For example: --params "/AddToDesktop".

To have Chocolatey remember parameters on upgrade, be sure to set choco feature enable -n=useRememberedArgumentsForUpgrades.

Notes

  • For versions of Windows prior to Windows 10 a reboot is required before the software can be used
  • This package is automatically updated using the Chocolatey Automatic Package Update Model (AU).
    If you find it is out of date by more than a day or two, please contact the maintainer(s) and let them know the package is no longer updating correctly.

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.
