To install Orange C/C++ Compiler (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To upgrade Orange C/C++ Compiler (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To uninstall Orange C/C++ Compiler (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


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 orangec -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 orangec -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

The Orange C/C++ Compiler is new work which includes an optimizing compiler, a tool chain, and an IDE. The compiler itself uses various standard techniques, as well as some interesting techniques mentioned in literature.

This compiler has support for the various C standards through C11, and full support for C++ 14. The IDE for the compiler is a full featured C/C++ language IDE including a colorizing editor with code completion, integrated make facility, debugger, and a WIN32 resource editor.

The tool chain is highly generic and the possibility exists to customize it for embedded platforms (or for that matter for example for other operating systems) using various linker customization files along with backend code generation programs. The existing backend code generation programs support WIN32 and MSDOS executable formats, along with a backend generator that will output Intel and Motorola hex files. The assembler uses a simple architecture description language to customize the code generation. The C Run time library this compiler uses is an enhancement of the RTL used by CC386. The Run time library in this package has WIN32 headers and an import library, many windows programs will compile with it although there are a few incompatibilities.

Documentation for this compiler and toolchain may be found at
Continuous integration for the project is being done at and you may be able to find a working beta of the next version of the compiler there.
An interesting variation on this compiler is the MSIL version which can generate either DLL or EXE files for .net.

This compiler will run on WIN32 and also on DOS, and generate 32-bit programs for both. However, unlike in CC386, the DOS version is the same build as the WIN32 version, and relies on Japheth's HXDOS extender to operate in DOS. But it will still build traditional DPMI targets e.g. for DOS32A and other extenders; the only feature missing that the DOS version of CC386 had is support for far pointers.

New work in this project is licensed under the GNU GPL, Version 3.  That includes
most of the executable files in the tool chain, and the run-time library.  See the
file 'license\copying_with_exception' for details.

An exception is that the WIN32 header files were derived from GNU sources, and
are covered under the GNU lesser public license.  Since these files are header
files rather than code it is unclear whether using them causes the GNU licensing
terms to attach to derivative works.  See the file 'license\copying' for details.

Additionally, the OCL program was originally written by Kirill Joss.
Licensing terms can be found in the 'license' directory.

Additionally, this package redistributes the runtimes for several MSDOS extenders.

The C# code used for the help viewer is microsoft public licensed.

The C# code used for the help downloader is apache 2 licensed.

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).
