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 truecrypt -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 truecrypt -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

Free open-source disk encryption software for Windows 7/Vista/XP, Mac OS X, and Linux.


TrueCrypt is currently unmaintained (since May 2014), which may have security implications. The original website and forums have been taken offline. For more information, see Wikipedia and the community website for plans on continuing development under a different name as required by the TrueCrypt license v3.0.

Security audit

Dec 2013: Prior to TrueCrypt developers abandoning the software, its security was brought to question and a public audit was called for and successfully funded on a public crowd-funding website.
May 2014: The anonymous TrueCrypt developers announce no further development of TrueCrypt and recommend Windows users to migrate to BitLocker, the closed source encryption available in certain versions of Microsoft Windows and Mac OSX users migrate to OS' native encryption tools in Disk Utility.
Apr 2015: The security audit is completed of TrueCrypt version 7.1a and published on The entirety of the final report is available as a PDF. An excerpt from that report follows:

> The Open Crypto Audit Project engaged Cryptography Services (CS) to perform a scoped engagement
on portions of TrueCrypt's cryptographic implementations and use. This review was narrowly scoped
to specific aspects of the application, and was time-boxed to an engagement length that was deemed
sufficient to give adequate coverage of the components in place.
> [...]
> CS identified four (4) issues, and none led to a complete bypass of confidentiality
in common usage scenarios. The standard workflow of creating a volume and making use of it
was reviewed, and no significant flaws were found that would impact it.

Version 7.2

Concurrent to the May 2014 announcement of abandoning the project and recommending users migrate to other software, version 7.2 was released as a closed source installer of TrueCrypt intended for migrating encrypted TrueCrypt containers to other encryption software.

Due to the unexpected and suspicious announcement and lack of information detailing any changes or fixes made to the installer, it is generally advised not to install version 7.2 for cautious users.

Version 7.1a

Although open source version 7.1a was released 7 February 2012, no critical security issues are known and it has been found reliable and stable.

This package installs version 7.1a

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).

Built and uploaded by dtgm to address the following issues:

  • UNCHANGED: This package continues to install the last published open source release of TrueCrypt, version 7.1a, as made available by the community at
  • FIX (Security): The installer now verifies the executable with SHA1 checksum before chocolatey proceeds with installation.
    choco feature list will indicate if chocolatey is verifying the checksum upon install. By default, it is Enabled.
    If checksumFiles - [Disabled] is returned, you may enable it with
    choco feature enable -n=checksumFiles
  • FIX (Compatibility): The uninstaller now searches registry for install location rather than requiring default install location.
  • FIX (Deprecated): Removed and cleaned deprecated parts from both install and uninstall scripts.
  • FIX (Info): Additional information in nuspec: description, releaseNotes, tags, copyright
  • FIX (Info): Corrected information in nuspec: summary, authors, icon
