choco upgrade dokany -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.7.4'" 

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

What is Dokan

When you want to create a new file system on Windows, other than FAT or NTFS, you need to develop a file system
driver. Developing a device driver that works in kernel mode on
windows is extremely technical. By using Dokan, you can create
your own file systems very easily without writing device drivers. Dokan
is similar to FUSE (Linux file system in user space) but works on Windows.

What is Dokany

Dokany is a fork of Dokan 0.6.0 with bug fixes, clean change history and updated to build with latest tools.

Because the original Dokan project is no longer maintained.

Because other forks like DokanX have undesired changes or are not really maintained.

Signed x86 / x64 drivers are provided at each release.

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.
