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

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade ddu -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 ddu -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

Display Driver Uninstaller

Display Driver Uninstaller is a driver removal utility that can help you completely
remove Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) display card drivers and packages (AMD/NVIDIA)
from your system without leaving leftovers behind; including registry keys, folders
and files, services, and the driver store.

The AMD/NVIDIA video drivers can normally be uninstalled from the Windows Control
panel, this driver uninstaller program was designed to be used in cases where the
standard driver uninstall fails, or whenever you need to thoroughly delete NVIDIA
and ATI video card drivers.

The current effect after you use this driver removal will be similar as if its the
first time you install a new driver just like a fresh, clean install of Windows.
As with any tool of this kind, we recommend creating a new system restore point
before using it, so that you can revert your system at any time if you run into


  • The tool can be used in Normal mode but for absolute stability when using DDU, Safe
    Mode is always recommended.
  • Make a backup or a system restore. (but it should normally be pretty safe.)

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.
