Welcome to the Chocolatey Community Package Repository! The packages found in this section of the site are provided, maintained, and moderated by the community.
Every version of each package undergoes a rigorous moderation process before it goes live that typically includes:
- Security, consistency, and quality checking
- Installation testing
- Virus checking through VirusTotal
- Human moderators who give final review and sign off
If you are an organization using Chocolatey, we want your experience to be fully reliable. Due to the nature of this publicly offered repository, reliability cannot be guaranteed. Packages offered here are subject to distribution rights, which means they may need to reach out further to the internet to the official locations to download files at runtime.
Fortunately, distribution rights do not apply for internal use. With any edition of Chocolatey (including the free open source edition), you can host your own packages and cache or internalize existing community packages.
Your use of the packages on this site means you understand they are not supported or guaranteed in any way. Learn more...

To edit the metadata for a package, please upload an updated version of the package.
Chocolatey's Community Package Repository currently does not allow updating package metadata on the website. This helps ensure that the package itself (and the source used to build the package) remains the one true source of package metadata.
This does require that you increment the package version.

checksum - Command line file checksum validator.
Determine a checksum for a file
checksum checks a file and returns a checksum for md5, sha1, and sha2 (sha256 and sha512).
To use checksum you would simply provide a file path and it will return the sum for the file.
checksum -f="c:\absolute\path" -t=sha256
Validate a file against an existing signature
You can also check against an existing signature.
To validate against an existing signature (hash) you would simply provide the file and the expected signature. When checking a signature, if the signature is valid it exits with 0, otherwise it exits with a non-zero exit code.
checksum -f="c:\absolute\path" -c=8AC4EA9A7B18E67EA97088220C40041B355A2C3049AA4E290D1F65A94BEFA9EF

Prints out the options.
REQUIRED: file - The is the name of the file. The file should exist
-t, --type, --hashtype=VALUE
Optional: hashtype - 'md5', 'sha1', 'sha256', or 'sha512'. Defaults to 'md5' or is determined by length of passed check value.
Optional: check - the signature you want to check. Not case sensitive.
md5: 5CA71CBFF5A8DE7E5E30B6E94CD42069 | sha1: 991701A32492D743430627CBFBD56D6884C32588 | sha256: 23FBD1EE66FCE6872E97B2FE84C409AB30A74FE8720B722BC6F8BAE6E7764C04 | sha512: 77E31EC0DCA4E4895D3A4C0E84C6C1516D94089763F1735CAC150EFCD4EEC36107BB810E24D94C1208B7A80881D858DBFE887B32DA6F6D8F0C48F21C2525D0BE

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.
