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...

21.8 | Updated: 16 Sep 2021
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.

This package is likely a meta/virtual (*) or an installer (*.install) or portable (*.portable) application package.
- Meta/virtual (*) - has a dependency on the *.install or the *.portable package - it is provided for discoverability and for other packages to take a dependency on.
- Portable (*.portable/*.commandline (deprecated naming convention)/*.tool (deprecated naming convention)) - usually zips or archives that require no administrative access to install.
- Install (*.install/*.app (deprecated naming convention)) - uses native installers, usually requires administrative access to install.

MiKTeX (pronounced mick-tech) is an up-to-date implementation of TeX/LaTeX and related programs. TeX is a typesetting system written by Donald Ervin Knuth who says that it is intended for the creation of beautiful books - and especially for books that contain a lot of mathematics.
MiKTeX comes with TeXworks, a TeX frontend which you can use it to edit and preview LaTeX documents.
The sky is the limit when it comes to TeX/LaTeX, with drawings, chemical equations, syntax trees, circuit diagrams, mathematical expressions, proof systems, chessboards and more! (Image source)
MiKTeX's integrated package manager installs missing components from the Internet, if required.
Package Set Parameter (optional)
/Set:(option)- Download and install the
completeset of TeX packages/tools.
/Mirror:(URL)- This will use the
(url), a CTAN mirror to download MiKTeX. It is recommended to only use this if the default mirror as chosen by the MiKTeX setup utility doesn't work for some reason.* Hint: Including
/Mirror(valid or not) will write the list of "official", URLs to the Chocolatey log.
/ThisUser- This will install MiKTeX for only this user. **Note: This can cause confusion for other users as Chocolatey will claim MiKTeX is installed but other users will (potentially) not be able to see/use it.
Custom Repository Parameter (optional)
This package has only the MiKTeX setup utility embedded. Any new install of MiKTeX involves using the setup utility to download and create a (temporary by default) repository and then installing from that repository. This Chocolatey package can both establish a more permenant repository (for sharing with other computers) and use a specific (possibly private) repository from which to install MiKTeX. Thus a single computer within a network could download MiKTeX from the internet and create a repository, and all other computers on the network could use that repository to install MiKTeX saving external bandwidth.
Using a Custom Repository:
/RepoPath:(path)-- with a local or UNC path. This will install or update MiKTeX from a specific existing repository. No attempt to update the repository itself will be made. Upgrades should use this repository in the future by default. Note: If both
/RepoPath(with a UNC path) and
/Mirrorwill be ignored.
Creating a Custom Repository:
/RepoPath:(path)- with a local directory as
(path). This will create (or update) the repository in the location. MiKTeX will also be installed. Note: The repository will not be shared or accessible to other systems without additional administrator actions and will not be removed on an uninstall.
- On a server, you might use:
choco install miktex.install --params '"/Set:complete /RepoPath:""c:\Shared Files\MiKTeX-Repo"""'
Double-double quotes (i.e.
""path"") are necessary for paths containing a space.
- On a workstation in the same network, you might use:
choco install miktex.install --params '"/RepoPath:\\localserver\MiKTeX-Repo"'
# This is just a virtual package for miktex.install

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.
