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

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to

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 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 diskdump -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 diskdump -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

DiskDump is a simple application I created some time ago to assist with dealing with a faulty hard disk. DiskDump not only saves the raw contents of a disk drive, but it also calculates the checksum of each block and stores it in a seperate file. This allows the image to be verified on a block-by-block basis.

The CRC algorithm used is CRC32.

Note that this is a very quickly written program. It may (and probably does) have issues. However, it worked for my purposes. This software only reads from disks, so it should be relatively safe, but as with anything else here, there is no warranty on anything that I have here.

DiskDump should work on Windows 2000 and newer systems. It requires MFC42.DLL (highly unlikely that one wouldn't have that though).

$packageName = 'diskdump'
$url = ''
$checksum = '7eaefedd7fdc2ff9a729347f23bdba441a35b0ba'
$checksumType = 'sha1'
$toolsDir = "$(Split-Path -parent $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition)"
Install-ChocolateyZipPackage -PackageName "$packageName" `
                             -Url "$url" `
                             -UnzipLocation "$toolsDir" `
                             -Url64bit "" `
                             -Checksum "$checksum" `
                             -ChecksumType "$checksumType"
$installFile = Join-Path $toolsDir "DiskDump.exe"
Set-Content -Path ("$installFile.gui") `
            -Value $null

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.
