📝 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 nvidia-display-driver -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'511.79'" [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 nvidia-display-driver -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'511.79'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

Description

This package strips all components out of the upstream NVidia driver package except the following:

  • Display.Driver
  • Display.Optimus
  • PhysX
  • HDAudio
  • USB-C driver

Package Parameters

The following package parameters can be set to enable optional display components:

  • /DCH - Install the DCH version of the driver.
  • /NV3DVision - Install 3DVision driver. Note: official support has been dropped.

These parameters can be passed to the installer with the use of --params.
For example: --params "'/DCH /NV3DVision'".

For DCH, please use the package parameter /dch
choco feature enable -n=useRememberedArgumentsForUpgrades
cinst nvidia-display-driver --package-parameters="'/dch'"

If you need support for non display related components (Shield, Geforce Experience, ...), install the unaltered geforce-game-ready-driver instead.

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).
