    • 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

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 inssider-lite -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

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

WiFi is awesome! ... but when something goes wrong, it can be a mystery to fix.

Do you have the tools to solve the mystery?

There are a multitude of problems that could be impacting the WiFi and some basic network health questions you have to answer:

  • Do I have good WiFi coverage everywhere?
  • Am I on the best channel to avoid congestion?
  • What other devices are transmitting?
  • Are they interfering with my WiFi?

Because WiFi is invisible and everywhere, these questions are usually difficult to answer... unless you have the right tools to visualize your wireless environment.

See Your WiFi with inSSIDer Lite

inSSIDer Lite is a WiFi troubleshooting and optimization tool that takes small WiFi network management to a whole new level. With a quick glance, you’ll be able to find poor channel placement, low signal strength, and RF interference in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands.

Data provided by inSSIDer Lite will help you make educated decisions about access point placement and channel selection, so you can create a more reliable network without being a certified WiFi expert.

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.
