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 bulk-crap-uninstaller -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 bulk-crap-uninstaller -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

Bulk Crap Uninstaller is a free (as in speech) program uninstaller. It excels at removing large amounts of applications with minimal user input. It can clean up leftovers, detect orphaned applications, run uninstallers according to premade lists, and much more!

Even though BCU was made with IT pros in mind, by default it is so straight-forward that anyone can use it effortlessly!


  • Detect orphaned applications
  • Startup manager
  • Multiple languages
  • Uninstall lists and searching
  • Verification of certificates
  • More data than you'd ever need
  • Detection and uninstallation of Windows Store apps
  • Uninstallation of multiple items at once (with collision prevention)
  • Advanced grouping, sorting, filtering and searching
  • Automatic detection and closing of running applications
  • Automatic updating and error reporting
  • Custom commands can be executed before and after uninstallation
  • Editing tools and backup creation - can generate .reg files and remove junk to recycle bin
  • Fully portable, requires Net 3.5 which is installed on all Windows 7 machines by default
  • Quiet (unattended) uninstall of many programs when they don't openly support it
  • Visibility of protected and invalid entries (system uninstaller doesn't see them)

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.
