NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • 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. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade megasync -y --source="'STEP 3 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 megasync -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

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

Exit $exitCode

MEGAsync is an installable application that synchronises folders between your computer and your MEGA Cloud Drive. All files and subfolders will be replicated in both directions. Changes that you make on your device will also be made on the MEGA Cloud Drive in near to real time (within the limits of link / system latency and file transfer times). Similarly, changes made in your MEGA Cloud Drive (such as renaming, moving and deleting) will also be made to the synced folders on your device.


  • Secure Global Access - Your data is accessible anytime. Use a web browser or one of our powerful apps, available for all major platforms.
  • End-to-End Encryption - Unlike most other cloud storage providers, only you control who has access to your data. Not even MEGA can access it!
  • Secure Collaboration - Share data and communicate with your contacts securely, and see their updates in real time.
  • Massive Storage Space - Not only are we more secure than our major competitors, we also provide a more generous amount of free storage.
  • Live Encrypted Backup - With our real-time file synchronisation and versioning features, your data is always safe and recoverable.
  • Public Source Code - To enable independent verification of the correctness and integrity of our crypto model and its implementation, we publish the full source code of our client apps.

The MEGAsync client does not have a silent uninstall. Two dialog windows appear confirming uninstallation.

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.
