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 openchrom -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 openchrom -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

OpenChrom® Community Edition is a free, extendable and easy-to-use software tool for chromatographic and mass spectrometric data analysis based on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP). Its focus is on handling mass spectrometry data files natively. Hence, mass spectrometric data generated, for example, by GC/MS, LC/MS, HPLC-MS, ICP-MS or MALDI-MS may be imported directly, without prior conversion, for subsequent visualization and evaluation. Aside from the support of various vendor data formats, data may also be imported in common formats such as NetCDF, csv or mzXML. All data format converters are provided as separate plug-ins which are not open source but free to use. Moreover, OpenChrom® offers a nicely adaptable graphical user interface.

OpenChrom® is tailored for data analysis purposes including processing, visualization and reporting. The implemented batch-processing features allow high-throughput evaluation. A continuously growing portfolio of processing and analysis procedures is provided. Extensions are welcome, as OpenChrom® is open source and uses a flexible approach, which allows others to implement their own methods, algorithms, filters, detectors or integrators.

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.
