If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade dnscrypt-proxy -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'2.0.22'" 

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

  • DNS traffic encryption and authentication. Supports DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) using TLS 1.3, and DNSCrypt.
  • DNS query monitoring, with separate log files for regular and suspicious queries
  • Filtering: block ads, malware, and other unwanted content. Compatible with all DNS services
  • Time-based filtering, with a flexible weekly schedule
  • Transparent redirection of specific domains to specific resolvers
  • DNS caching, to reduce latency and improve privacy
  • Local IPv6 blocking to reduce latency on IPv4-only networks
  • Load balancing: pick a set of resolvers, dnscrypt-proxy will automatically measure and keep track of their speed, and balance the traffic across the fastest available ones.
  • Cloaking: like a HOSTS file on steroids, that can return preconfigured addresses for specific names, or resolve and return the IP address of other names. This can be used for local development as well as to enforce safe search results on Google, Yahoo and Bing.
  • Automatic background updates of resolvers lists
  • Can force outgoing connections to use TCP
  • Supports SOCKS proxies
  • Compatible with DNSSEC

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).
