Have you had a chance to look at the comments below?



Update 1: In addition you used some kind of logo instead of an icon, see our icon guidelines: The infinity symbol from vs2008 looks like the ideal icon for this package.

The package description is just a repetition of the package name. Please provide a description of what the package is about (see our guidelines in


Original message: One thing that was pointed out that I missed was the naming convention of this package. We'd prefer this package to be named windows-sdk-2008.

Can you submit a package with that name?

WindowsSDK2008 has passed automated validation.
NOTICE: We are permanently fixing our backlog issues and we want to apologize that it has taken so long - please see

NOTE: No required changes that the validator checks have been flagged! It is appreciated if you fix other items, but only Requirements will hold up a package version from approval. A human review could still turn up issues a computer may not easily find.


Guidelines are strong suggestions that improve the quality of a package version. These are considered something to fix for next time to increase the quality of the package. Over time Guidelines can become Requirements. A package version can be approved without addressing Guideline comments but will reduce the quality of the package.

  • This package uses a helper function that requires administrative permissions, the tag 'admin' should also be in the nuspec. More...
    • NOTE: This becomes a Requirement starting on 1 February 2016.
  • Package contains dependencies with no specified version. You should at least specify a minimum version of a dependency. More...
  • The nuspec has been enhanced to allow packageSourceUrl, pointing to the url where the package source resides. This is a strong guideline because it simplifies collaboration. Please add it to the nuspec. More...
  • Release Notes (releaseNotes) are a short description of changes in each version of a package. Please include releasenotes in the nuspec. NOTE: To prevent the need to continually update this field, providing a URL to an external list of Release Notes is perfectly acceptable. More...
  • Write-ChocolateySuccess/Write-ChocolateyFailure have been deprecated, but have been found in the package's automation scripts. Remove the usage of those two functions. If there is an error, throw the error. More... This can also give a false positive for commented code with the words:
    • Write-ChocolateySuccess
    • Write-ChocolateyFailure
  • Summary (summary) is a short explanation of the software. Please include summary in the nuspec. More...

Suggestions are either newly introduced items that will later become Guidelines or items that are don't carry enough weight to become a Guideline. Either way they should be considered. A package version can be approved without addressing Suggestion comments.

  • The nuspec has been enhanced to allow more information related to the software. More... Please consider adding one or more of the following to the nuspec, if available:
    • docsUrl - points to the location of the wiki or docs of the software
    • mailingListUrl - points to the forum or email list group for the software
    • bugTrackerUrl - points to the location where issues and tickets can be accessed
    • projectSourceUrl - points to the location of the underlying software source

We've found WindowsSDK2008 v6.0.6001 in a submitted status and waiting for your next actions. It has had no updates within 20 days after a reviewer has asked for corrections. Please note that if there is no response or fix of the package within 15 days of this message, this package version will automatically be closed (rejected) due to being stale.

Take action:

  • Log in to the site and respond to the review comments.
  • Resubmit fixes for this version.
  • If the package version is failing automated checks, you can self-reject the package.

If your package is failing automated testing, you can use the chocolatey test environment to manually run the verification and determine what may need to be fixed.

Note: We don't like to see packages automatically rejected. It doesn't mean that we don't value your contributions, just that we can not continue to hold packages versions in a waiting status that have possibly been abandoned. If you don't believe you will be able to fix up this version of the package within 15 days, we strongly urge you to log in to the site and respond to the review comments until you are able to.

Unfortunately there has not been progress to move WindowsSDK2008 v6.0.6001 towards an approved status within 15 days after the last review message, so we need to close (reject) the package version at this time. If you want to pick this version up and move it towards approval in the future, use the contact site admins link on the package page and we can move it back into a submitted status so you can submit updates.

Status Change - Changed status of package from 'submitted' to 'rejected'.
