Welcome to the Chocolatey Community Package Repository! The packages found in this section of the site are provided, maintained, and moderated by the community.
Every version of each package undergoes a rigorous moderation process before it goes live that typically includes:
- Security, consistency, and quality checking
- Installation testing
- Virus checking through VirusTotal
- Human moderators who give final review and sign off
If you are an organization using Chocolatey, we want your experience to be fully reliable. Due to the nature of this publicly offered repository, reliability cannot be guaranteed. Packages offered here are subject to distribution rights, which means they may need to reach out further to the internet to the official locations to download files at runtime.
Fortunately, distribution rights do not apply for internal use. With any edition of Chocolatey (including the free open source edition), you can host your own packages and cache or internalize existing community packages.
Your use of the packages on this site means you understand they are not supported or guaranteed in any way. Learn more...

To edit the metadata for a package, please upload an updated version of the package.
Chocolatey's Community Package Repository currently does not allow updating package metadata on the website. This helps ensure that the package itself (and the source used to build the package) remains the one true source of package metadata.
This does require that you increment the package version.

MD5 - Command Line Message Digest Utility
md5 [ -csignature ] [ -l ] [ -n ] [ -u ] [ -v ] [ -dinput_text | infile… ]
Computes the signature of the specified infile or the string supplied by the -d option and compares it against the specified signature. If the two signatures match, the exit status will be zero, otherwise the exit status will be 1. No signature is written; only the exit status is set. The signature to be checked must be specified as 32 hexadecimal digits.
A signature is computed for the given input_text (which must be quoted if it contains white space characters) instead of input from infile or standard input. If input is specified with the -d option, no infile should be specified.
Use lower case letters for hexadecimal digits "a" through "f". By default, upper case letters are used. Note that the signature argument to the -c option may use upper or lower case hexadecimal digits (or a mix) regardless of the setting of this option.
Suppress printing the file name (or "-" for standard input) after the hexadecimal signature.
Write output to fname. If fname is "-", output is written to standard output, which is the default is no -o option is specified.
Print how-to-call information.
Print version information.
If no infile or -d option is specified or infile is a single "-", md5 reads from standard input. A single "-" on the command line causes all subsequent arguments to be treated as file names even if they begin with "-". If no -o option is specified or the fname is a single "-", output is sent to standard output. Input and output are processed strictly serially; consequently md5 may be used in pipelines.

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.
