- Non-invasive collection - suitable for use in live, production environments
- Xcopy deployment - copy and run
- Memory
+ Support for very large heaps (gigabytes)
+ Snapshot diffing
+ Dump files (.dmp)
- CPU Performance
+ Support for managed, native, and mixed code

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.
