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 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 anaconda2 -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 anaconda2 -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

Anaconda® is a package manager, an environment manager, a Python distribution, and a collection of over 1,000+ open source packages. It is free and easy to install, and it offers free community support.

Anaconda Distribution contains conda and Anaconda Navigator. You can try both conda and Navigator to see which is right for you to manage your packages and environments. You can even switch between them, and the work you do with one can be viewed in the other.

Download the Anaconda Cheat Sheet (48 KB PDF) for a quick guide to using Anaconda.

Package Defaults

Anaconda Python:

  • will install for all users
  • will not be added to the path
  • will be registered as the default Python
  • will install to $ChocolateyToolsLocation\Anaconda2 (i.e. C:\Tools\Anaconda2 by default)

You can change any of the defaults with package parameters:

  • /JustMe - Install for only the current user.
  • /AddToPath - Add Anaconda Python to the path.
  • /DoNotRegister - Do not register Anaconda Python as the default Python.
  • /D:(path) - Choose another, existing, parent directory to place the 'Anaconda2' directory.

choco install anaconda3 --params '"/AddToPath /D:c:\MyTools"'

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.
