Deployment Method: Individual Install, Upgrade, & Uninstall

To install Microsoft .NET 7.0 Runtime, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To upgrade Microsoft .NET 7.0 Runtime, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To uninstall Microsoft .NET 7.0 Runtime, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


Deployment Method:


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

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)

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 https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. 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 dotnet-7.0-runtime -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 dotnet-7.0-runtime -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

- name: Install dotnet-7.0-runtime
    name: dotnet-7.0-runtime
    version: '7.0.20'

Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 29 May 2024.


.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 package is required to run console applications with the .NET Runtime (Microsoft.NETCore.App).

.NET 7.0 supports Windows 10 1607 / Server 2012 or later, according to documented system requirements.

The package supports the following parameters (--package-parameters, --params):

  • Passive - display native installer progress window (may not work on Server Core)
  • Skip32Bit - do not install the 32-bit runtime on a 64-bit system

Example: cinst -y --params="Passive Skip32Bit" dotnetcore-runtime.install

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.
