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 flashpoint-core -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 flashpoint-core -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

BlueMaxima's Flashpoint is a webgame preservation project dedicated to preserving as many experiences from web
platforms, including but not limited to Adobe Flash, as possible, so that they aren't lost to time.

Flashpoint utilizes a strong selection of open-source software. By combining the power of Apache, a custom-built
launcher, and our own application called the Flashpoint Secure Player, we can play web-based media in a quick,
user-friendly environment without leaving permanent changes or security holes on your computer.

Flashpoint Core is a distribution of the Flashpoint Launcher (FPL) that is tailored specifically to project
contributors and contains example entries for each platform.


Package Parameters

The following package parameter can be set:

  • /AddToDesktop - this puts a shortcut on your desktop to Flashpoint.

These parameters can be passed to the installer with the use of --params.
For example: --params "/AddToDesktop".

To have Chocolatey remember parameters on upgrade, be sure to set choco feature enable -n=useRememberedArgumentsForUpgrades.


  • Flashpoint Core is targeted at project contributors. If you are just looking to access the preserved content you are
    most likely looking for Flashpoint Infinity.
  • You may be prompted by the Windows Firewall to allow the Apache HTTP Server on first execution
  • This package is automatically updated using the Chocolatey Automatic Package Update Model (AU).
    If you find it is out of date by more than a day or two, please contact the maintainer(s) and let them know the package is no longer updating correctly.

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.
