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 cutter -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 cutter -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

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.

In this release, we introduce major improvements to the Decompiler feature in Cutter. These improvements couldn't be made without the help of our team member and GSoC student @NirmalManoj 👏

  • Context menu interactions with the decompiler are now context sensitive, only relevant menu items are shown and they applied to the item that was clicked
  • Decompiler based Syntax Highlighting in the Decompiler widget (old highlighting mode can be chosen in appearance options)
  • Support opening multiple Decompiler widgets at the same time. Each of the instances can be set to show different decompiler (Ghidra, RetDec, r2dec, ...) and different functions.
  • Make the current-address synchronization consistent with rest of widgets

Known Limitations

  • The new features in the Decompiler work best with r2ghidra, not all of them are implemented for r2dec
  • Some hacky features, like instruction patching, that were available in the previous context menu are not available in the new one and might be added in the future.
  • Decompiling large functions using r2ghidra causes UI to freeze temporarily

To read the full list of changes, check our blog post: Improving Decompiler Widget - GSoC Project


  • Cutter 1.12.0 depends on radare2 4.5.1


  • Support analysis after opening the file
  • Configurable analysis options from the Preferences widget

The success of this release couldn't be achieved without the help and time dedicated by many contributors which are new to the Cutter family. We appreciate the work and honored to welcome our new contributors: @Surendrajat, @ocastejon, @sagcan, @DX-MON, @kohnakagawa, @7h3qu1rkyb1t, @DeleteXso, @polaris
