NOTE

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

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


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 https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. 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 messengerreviver -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'2.2.4.0'" [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 messengerreviver -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'2.2.4.0'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

Description

Messenger Reviver is a messenger repair tool that allows use of Windows Live Messenger even after the migration to Skype.
This simple app can install working versions of Messenger 2012 or Messenger 2009 and also �Revive� (repair and modify) versions of Messenger 2012, 2011, and 2009 that are already installed.
Reviver checks to see if Messenger is currently installed, which versions can be modified, and if they need any new repairs.
Reviver will even know if Skype automatically removed Messenger. While Reviver will allow you to sign into Messenger for the time being, it will not extend past the full discontinuation date (estimated to be March 2014).
Reviver�s will offer different options depending on whether or not Messenger is currently installed or if it was installed but removed by Skype.
In the first case you will be able to select from a list of detected versions of Messenger. If Messenger isn�t installed you can choose to install Messenger 2012 or 2009 (but not 2011) and pick from 47 supported languages.
Finally, if Skype has removed Messenger you will be prompted to begin repairs to restore it.
All of these different processes are very simple and quick, allowing you to use Messenger again. The installations and repairs to the different versions of Messenger do not change or update the programs.
They still function the same as before. Thankfully Reviver is just a great and simple way to maintain your favorite version of Messenger without having to switch to Skype.
