Deployment Method:

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

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to

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 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 myrica -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO 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 myrica -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

Based on multiple font files, it has been combined / modified to improve visibility and discrimination.

Features inherited from the programming font Ricty

  • ASCII characters "Inconsolata" apply.
  • For other characters, "Genshin Gothic" or "Mgen +" is applied.
  • The width ratio of half-width characters to full-width characters is adjusted to 1: 2.
  • You can use highly visible Japanese characters (such as half-toned sounds).

Features not found in Ricty

The following characters have hinting information, so they are also clear on Windows:

  • ASCII characters inherit hinting information from hinted Inconsolata.
  • (Hinting information is added to Hiragana and Katakana) -> As quality was not good, we canceled.

Font configuration / distribution file


The ASCII character is a file based on Inconsolata, and the other character is a source based on Gothic.


ASCII characters are files based on Inconsolata, and other characters are based on Mgen +.

Glyph composition

The characters are considered to be easy to distinguish for programming.

The ASCII character (0x21-0x7E) has been replaced with "Inconsolata"* and the following changes have been made.
* Inconsolata: Sans serif monospaced Latin font highly regarded for "Top 10 Programming Fonts" and "the best font for programming".

  • r with serif (replaced with another glyph contained in Inconsolata)
  • D with crossbar (replaced with another glyph contained in Inconsolata)
  • Is a break line (replaced by another glyph contained in Inconsolata)

Other than ASCII characters were based on "Genshin Gothic"* or "Mgen +".
* Gengen Gothic: Japanese font created based on “Genno Koji Gothic” Mgen +: Japanese font created based on "M + OUTLINE FONTS".

Some characters have been corrected:

- Corrected to increase "'`,.:;
- 0x002a *: astarsk (original)
- 0x006c l: small letter l (original)
- 0x2013 –: en dash – (refer to Ricty)
- 0x2014 —: em dash — (refer to Ricty)

  • It is easy to distinguish it as a turbidity point by enlarging the half turbidity point of "Papipupe Papipupepo" (With reference to Migu)
  • Distinguishing between "Ka-to-Ki-Echi-ro-to-One-Nii" (Katakana / Kanji) - (With reference to Migu)
  • Distinguishing between "..." (FULLWIDTH TILDE · WAVE DASH) - (With reference to Migu)
  • Distinguishing between "-one-" (katakana, kanji and minus)

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.
