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 https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2. 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 https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade choco-upgrade-all-at -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 choco-upgrade-all-at -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description


choco://choco-upgrade-all-at
To use choco:// protocol URLs, install (unofficial) choco:// Protocol support


DO YOU WANT TO UPGRADE YOUR CHOCOLATEY PACKAGES EVERY DAY? OR MAYBE EVERY WEEK?

YOU JUST FOUND THE EASY WAY!

This package creates a Windows Scheduled Task to run "choco upgrade all -y" with enhanced options at a time and frequency you specify. And because sometimes package installations go wrong... it will also create a Windows Scheduled Task to run "taskkill /im choco.exe /f /t" to stop the Chocolatey (choco.exe) process and all child processes at a time you specify.

This package is a pseudo replacement for choco-upgrade-all-at-startup.

USAGE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • You can do nothing and it will run at the set it and forget it time. :)
  • You can manually run choco-upgrade-all from Command Prompt or PowerShell.
  • You can manually run choco-install packagename from Command Prompt or PowerShell to install packages with your choco-upgrade-all-at settings.

INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:

You can install choco-upgrade-all-at with multiple parameters to make it run "choco upgrade all -y" daily or weekly (Monthly is just not often enough!) at your preferred time. If you enter no parameters at all, choco-upgrade-all-at will default to run "choco upgrade all -y" at 2 AM every day and abort the process at 4 AM. When entering the TIME and ABORTTIME parameters, use "Military Time." When entering the DAILY or WEEKLY parameter you can actually use anything, "yes" just makes sense though. When using the WEEKLY parameter, DAYS are entered as MON, TUE, WED, THU, FRI, SAT, or SUN. Not entering the correct format will fail the install. Please see the examples below.

INSTALL EXAMPLES:

  • choco install choco-upgrade-all-at --params "'/TIME:23:00'" - runs "choco upgrade all -y" daily (default) at 11 PM and aborts at 1 AM, ABORTTIME defaults to +2 hours.
  • choco install choco-upgrade-all-at --params "'/DAILY:yes /TIME:04:00 /ABORTTIME:08:00'" - runs "choco upgrade all -y" daily at 4 AM and aborts it at 8 AM.
  • choco install choco-upgrade-all-at --params "'/WEEKLY:yes /DAY:SUN /TIME:01:00'" - runs "choco upgrade all -y" every Sunday at 1 AM and aborts at 3 AM.
  • choco install choco-upgrade-all-at --params "'/NOTASK:true'" - installs choco-upgrade-all.ps1/bat without the scheduled task.

POST INSTALL CONFIGURATION:

  • To enable enhanced options such as automatically deleting newly installed Desktop and Start Menu icons, running pre and/or post processing scripts, or setting a default user profile, edit c:\tools\BCURRAN3\choco-upgrade-all.config or run choco-upgrade-all -EditConfig

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.

A NOTE ON DEFAULTS:

  • If you don't specify any parameters, choco-upgrade-all-at defaults to running daily at 2AM and aborting at 4 AM. (My preference!)
  • Not specifying a TIME will always default to 2 AM. Not specifying an ABORTTIME will always default to TIME +2 hours.
  • When WEEKLY is specified but a DAY isn't, default first run will be a week from installation date; i.e. next week on whatever day of the week you installed the package.

IF UPGRADING FROM A VERSION EARLIER THAN 0.0.4:

Your old scheduled task will be deleted and replaced with default (mentioned above) parameters. To ensure choco-upgrade-all-at runs when you want it to, you should uninstall and reinstall with the settings you prefer.
I have not tested with useRememberedArgumentsForUpgrades, you might get daily still with your preferred time.

IF UPGRADING FROM VERSION 0.0.4 or 0.0.4.1:

You're old scheduled task will be kept. You will need to uninstall and re-install to take advantage of the new ABORTTIME feature.

IF UPGRADING FROM A VERSION EARLIER THAN 0.0.6:

It is HIGHLY advised you read the Release Notes/ChangeLog and run choco-upgrade-all -EditConfig to enable the new enhanced features.

CHANGELOG:

  • 0.0.6 - Fixed wrong command in scheduled task. Added option to automatically delete newly created Desktop and Start Menu icons. Added option to run pre and post processing scripts. Added configurable arguments. Added ability to set default user profile. Edit C:\tools\BCURRAN3\choco-upgrade-all.config to enable the enhanced options. You can now run choco-upgrade-all from the command line to take advantage of these enhanced options. Added choco-install script which also uses the enhanced options. Added -EditConfig option to edit the config file. Changed default ABORTTIME to be TIME +2 hours.
  • 0.0.5 - Added abort stuck upgrades feature. "Um, why do I want this?" you're thinking. You want this because sometimes background package installations go wrong. "Go wrong?" you're thinking. Yes, there are a couple scenarios where a Chocolatey package installation/upgrade can hang: if a package needs input, if an AutoHotKey or AutoIt script fails, and all those times a program installer pops up a browser window to tell you "Thank you." These scenarios leave hung processes in the background with no way for you to easily interact with them (They're in the background!). This means they are taking up memory resources for no reason and might cause problems installing other packages or programs. If you knew there was a hung process, you could manually stop the task, but who wants to check every day? This will automate checking and stopping any Chocolatey package hung tasks at the time you specify. I recommend setting it to a time an hour or two after you run your updates.
  • 0.0.4.1 - Fixed compatibility with Windows 7 and 8 machines by using SchTasks.exe for everything and not using the Windows 10/Server 2016 only Get-ScheduledTask cmdlet. Removed PowerShell v4/v5 dependency.
  • 0.0.4 - Added option to run weekly.

ROADMAP

    • Move the ABORTTIME feature into the config file; i.e. Start-Job, Start-Sleep ABORTIME, Stop-Job
