1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to

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 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 gitlab-runner -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'14.8.0'" [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 gitlab-runner -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'14.8.0'" 

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

Exit $exitCode

GitLab Runner is the open source project that is used to run your jobs and send the results back to GitLab. It is used in conjunction with GitLab CI, the open-source continuous integration service included with GitLab that coordinates the jobs.


  • Allows to run:
    • multiple jobs concurrently
    • use multiple tokens with multiple server (even per-project)
    • limit number of concurrent jobs per-token
  • Jobs can be run:
    • locally
    • using Docker containers
    • using Docker containers and executing job over SSH
    • using Docker containers with autoscaling on different clouds and virtualization hypervisors
    • connecting to remote SSH server
  • Is written in Go and distributed as single binary without any other requirements
  • Supports Bash, Windows Batch and Windows PowerShell
  • Works on GNU/Linux, OS X and Windows (pretty much anywhere you can run Docker)
  • Allows to customize the job running environment
  • Automatic configuration reload without restart
  • Easy to use setup with support for Docker, Docker-SSH, Parallels or SSH running environments
  • Enables caching of Docker containers
  • Easy installation as a service for GNU/Linux, OSX and Windows
  • Embedded Prometheus metrics HTTP server

Package parameters

  • /InstallDir - Installation directory. If the Gitlab Runner is already installed, its current directory will be used. To install to a new directory, uninstall it first.
  • /Service - Install as a service. If value is not specified system account will be used. If value is specified it is in the form of Username:Password. The installer will create that user if it doesn't exist, add it to local administrators group, enable ServiceLogonRight and disable password expiration. Example: /Service:gitlab-runner:P@ssw0rd. Can't be used with Autologon parameter
  • /Autologon - Use autologon feature of Windows. Can't be used with Service parameter. Username and password must be provided. Example: /Autologon:gitlab-runner:P@ssw0rd.


  • The script register_example.ps1 is provided along the executable which can be used to quickly register runner non-interactively. If you want to use it, rename it to register.ps1 and set desired environment variables.
  • Autologon vs Service: Services do not have access to all Windows features and some scripts, particularly those that depend on GUI, are not usable.

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).
