To install Chocolatey Core Extensions, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To upgrade Chocolatey Core Extensions, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To uninstall Chocolatey Core Extensions, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


Deployment Method:


This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)

2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • 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. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade chocolatey-core.extension -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO 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 chocolatey-core.extension -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

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

Exit $exitCode

Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 15 May 2024.


This is a extension package that provides helper functions installed as a Chocolatey extension.
These functions may be used in Chocolatey install/uninstall scripts by declaring this package a dependency in your package's nuspec.
This package provides helper functions that can be used to enhance what is already available out of the box with Chocolatey CLI.
This includes both features that are being tested for Chocolatey CLI itself, and other helpers to make the maintenance of
Chocolatey packages easier.

Helpers that were available in this package, and were later added to Chocolatey CLI, will be moved to
the package chocolatey-compatibility.extension.

Backwards compatibility is not considered for helpers available in this package, see the Notes below.


  • There is a known bug in the function Get-AppInstallLocation with parameter $AppNamePattern which is internally used both as wildcard and regex patterns. This usually doesn't create any problems, but may do so if application contains regex symbols in the name, such as notepad++.
  • This package itself is not concerned with keeping backwards compatibility with Chocolatey CLI. If compatibility is of concern, instead take a dependency on chocolatey-compatibility.extension.

    Get application install location

    Function tries to find install location in multiple places. It returns $null if all fail. The following
    locations are tried:

        - $env:http_proxy environment variable
        - IE proxy

    Use Verbose parameter to see which of the above locations was used for the result, if any.
    The function currently doesn't handle the proxy username and password.

    [String] in the form of http://<proxy>:<port>
function Get-EffectiveProxy(){

    Get temporary location for the package based on its name and version.

    The function returns package cache directory within $Env:TEMP. It will not create the directory
    if it doesn't exist.

    This function is useful when you have to obtain the file using `Get-ChocolateyWebFile` in order
    to perform certain installation steps that other helpers can't do.



function Get-PackageCacheLocation {
    param (
        # Name of the package, by default $Env:ChocolateyPackageName

    $res = Join-Path $res $Version

  Download file with choco internals

  This function will download a file from specified url and return it as a string.
  This command should be a replacement for ubiquitous WebClient in install scripts.

  The benefit of using this command instead of WebClient is that it correctly handles
  system or explicit proxy.

  PS C:\> $s = Get-WebContent "http://example.com"
  PS C:\> $s -match 'Example Domain'

  First command downloads html content from http://example.com and stores it in $s.
  Now you can parse and match it as a string.

  PS C:\> $opts = @{ Headers = @{ Referer = 'http://google.com' } }
  PS C:\> $s = Get-WebContent -url "http://example.com" -options $opts

  You can set headers for http request this way.



  This function can only return string content.
  If you want to download a binary content, please use Get-WebFile.

function Get-WebContent {
        # Url to download

        # Additional options for http request.For now only Headers property supported.

        # Allows splatting with arguments that do not apply and future expansion. Do not use directly.
        [parameter(ValueFromRemainingArguments = $true)]
        [Object[]] $IgnoredArguments

    $filePath =  get_temp_filepath
    Get-WebFile -Url $Url -FileName $filePath -Options $Options 3>$null

    $fileContent = Get-Content $filePath -ReadCount 0 | Out-String
    Remove-Item $filePath


function get_temp_filepath() {
    $tempDir = Get-PackageCacheLocation
    $fileName = [System.IO.Path]::GetRandomFileName()
    Join-Path $tempDir $fileName

    Register application in the system

    The function will register application in the system using App Paths registry key so that you
    can start it by typing its registred name in the Windows Start menu on using run dialog (Win + R).

    To make applications available in the shell, add to your profile Set-AppKeyAliases function.

    Register-Application 'c:\windows\notepad.exe'

    Register application using name derived from its file name.

    Register-Application 'c:\windows\notepad.exe' -Name ntp

    Register application using explicit name.

   Set-AppKeyAliases        - https://github.com/majkinetor/posh/blob/master/MM_Admin/Set-AppKeyAliases.ps1
   Application Registration - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee872121(v=vs.85).aspx

function Register-Application{
        # Full path of the executable to register.

        # Register application only for the current user. By default registration is for the machine.

    Set-ItemProperty -Path $AppPathKey -Name "(Default)" -Value $ExePath
    Ensure that process is stopped in reliable way

    Close the processes matching filters gracefully first, then forcefully.
    If no process is found, function will simply do and return nothing.

    notepad; Remove-Process notepad -PathFilter 'system32'

    Close main window of notepad that has 'system32' word in its path

    Remove-Process notepad -WaitFor 30

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).
