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

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade visualstudio2013expressweb -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 visualstudio2013expressweb -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

This silently installs Visual Studio 2013 Express for Web along with the Microsoft .Net 4.5.1 Framework SDK. All Optional Features such as Blend, Sql Dev tools, Web dev tools, etc. are not installed. However, from the "Programs and Features" menu in Windows you can right click Microsoft Visual Studio Ultimate and choose "Change" and then add the features you want. If you do not already have IE 10, it will require a reboot.

Install-ChocolateyPackage 'VisualStudio2013ExpressWeb' 'exe' "/Passive /NoRestart /Log $env:temp\vs.log" '' -validExitCodes @(0, 3010)

$app = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product | Where-Object { $_.Name -eq "Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 for Web - ENU" } | Select-Object -First 1
if($app -ne $null){

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.
