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 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. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade visualstudio2017-workload-vctools -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 visualstudio2017-workload-vctools -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

Description

Overview

This package adds the Visual C++ build tools workload to an existing installation of Visual Studio 2017 Build Tools.

The list of components included in this workload is shown here.

Visual Studio 2017 Build Tools must be installed first, for example using the Chocolatey package visualstudio2017buildtools.

Customizations

The package passes all package parameters to the Visual Studio installer, enabling full customization of the installation. The possible parameters are described here. The package passes --norestart by default, and --quiet, unless --passive is specified in the package parameters.

By default, the package installs only components required by the workload. Package parameters can be used to include recommended and/or optional components:

  • --includeRecommended - Includes the recommended components.
  • --includeOptional - Includes the optional components.

Example. Installing the workload, including recommended, but not optional components:

choco install visualstudio2017-workload-vctools --package-parameters "--includeRecommended"

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.
