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 autopsy -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 autopsy -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

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).

Specialized UIs:
* New File Discovery UI that allows you to search and filter for certain types of files. Works best with the Central Repository storing all of the hashes you've seen.
* New Map viewer that uses either Bing (when online) or offline map tiles.
* Communications UI shows country names for phone numbers and fixed bug in summary panel.
* Fixed bugs in timeline filtering.
* Refactored backend timeline filtering code based on The Sleuth Kit data model changes to remove JavaFX dependency.

Data Sources:
* Added limited support for APFS disk images. Does not include encrypted volumes or ones that span multiple disks. Uses contribution to The Sleuth Kit from Black Bag Technologies.
* New data source processor that parses “XRY File Exports”.

Content Viewers:

* Improved support for Unicode HTML files in “Application” viewer.
* Added support for webp image files in “Application” viewer.

Ingest Modules:
* Keyword Search module uses Decodetect statistical encoding detection for plain text files. Fixes issues with incorrect detection of Japanese files.

* Solr (Keyword Search module) now uses Japanese-specific tokenization using Kuromoji.
* Fixed Shellbags module in RegRipper (used by Autopsy Recent Activity module) to fix parsing errors.
* Plaso module no longer generates an error if enabled for non-disk image data sources.
* Added support for message attachments that are stored as an external file system file. Expanded Email and Android modules to use this technique.
