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 dotnet -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

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

This package is exempt from moderation. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.

.NET Core is a general purpose development platform maintained by Microsoft and the .NET community on GitHub. It is cross-platform, supporting Windows, macOS and Linux, and can be used in device, cloud, and embedded/IoT scenarios.

This is a metapackage, which installs the latest release of .NET Runtime across all versions (it is effectively an alias for the dotnet-runtime package).

The .NET Runtime is required to run .NET console applications. For running .NET desktop applications, install the dotnet-desktopruntime package. For running ASP.NET Core applications on IIS or IIS Express, install the dotnet-windowshosting package. For developing .NET applications, install the dotnet-sdk package.

No results available for this package. We are building up results for older packages over time so expect to see results. If this is a new package, it should have results within a day or two.
