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 blockjsvbs-winconfig -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 blockjsvbs-winconfig -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

blockjsvbs-winconfig helps protect you from malware payloads delivered using JavaScript and VBScript. It does this by simply reassociating the related file extensions (.js, .jse, .vbs, .vbe) to open up in your default text editor (most likely Notepad or Wordpad) instead of executing the scripts via their native script engines.

blockjsvbs-winconfig is only one step in helping to protect your computer from malware. There are many more file extensions that you may want to reassociate or disassociate completely. You can simply do this for more file extensions by looking at the ChocolateyInstall and ChocolateyUninstall scripts or read about the assoc command.

blockjsvbs-winconfig is global. You only need to run it once and it will help protect all users of the computer.

Uninstalling blockjsvbs-winconfig will revert the file associations back to default.

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.
