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-startup -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-startup -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

DO YOU WANT TO UPGRADE YOUR CHOCOLATEY PACKAGES EVERY TIME YOUR COMPUTER BOOTS?

YOU JUST FOUND THE EASY WAY!

This package creates a Windows Scheduled Task to run "choco upgrade all -y" with enhanced options every time your computer boots.

Please understand your computer boot time will increase. If you reboot daily, you'll probably never notice. If you reboot infrequently, you'll notice a slow down as packages are downloaded and updated/installed, especially if you have a slow Internet connection. Because of this choco-upgrade-all-at-startup is pseudo-deprecated and pseudo-superseded by choco upgrade all at which allows you to set a time to run "choco upgrade all -y" every day in the wee hours of morning while you're happily dreaming of owning a supercomputer instead of twiddling your thumbs waiting for your "slow" computer to boot up. Otherwise it works wonderfully at keeping your Chocolatey installed programs up to date.

USAGE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • You can do nothing and it will run at startup when on AC power.
  • 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-startup settings.

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

SYSADMINS: I recommend use of choco-upgrade-all-at-startup for notebook/laptop users who tend to shut down their computers at night and thus miss scheduled updates/maintenance such as choco upgrade all at (in the wee hours of the morning).

IF UPGRADING FROM A VERSION EARLIER THAN 2021.03.15:

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

CHANGELOG:

  • 2021.03.13 - 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.

Added -EditConfig option to edit the config file.
  • 2018.08.22 - 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.
  • 2018.01.30 - simplified, standardized, description updated, uninstall added
  • 2017.01.10 - original release

ROADMAP

  • Re-write task creation using PowerShell cmdlets (instead of using schtasks) for advanced options such as enabling run on battery, limited execution time, only when a network is available, etc..

This package has no dependencies.
