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 lsagent -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

LsAgent is a small, lightweight application that you can install on your Windows, Mac and Linux devices. It gathers the asset data locally and then sends it back to your Lansweeper installation, either by using a direct push or through Lansweeper's cloud-hosted relay service.


  • Automatically collect an inventory from a computer and sends the data back to a Lansweeper installation, either directly or through the lansweeper relay server in the cloud.
  • Does not require scanning credentials in Lansweeper.
  • Does not require administrative privileges to be able to scan.
  • Does not require configuration of your computers' firewalls for scanning. It does require an outbound connection to your Lansweeper installation or cloud relay server.

Package parameters

  • /Prefix - Installation Directory (Optional). Default: C:\Program Files (x86)/LansweeperAgent
  • /Server - FQDN, NetBios or IP of the Lansweeper Scanning Server.
  • /Port - Listening Port on the Scanning Server (Optional). Default: 9524.
  • /AgentKey - Cloud Relay Authentication Key (Optional).

Example: choco install lsagent --params "/Server=lansweepersvr"

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.
