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 vscode-cpptools -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 vscode-cpptools -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

The extension has OS-specific binary dependencies, so installation via the Marketplace requires an Internet connection so that these additional dependencies can be downloaded. If you are working on a computer that does not have access to the Internet or is behind a strict firewall, you may need to use our OS-specific packages and install them by invoking VS Code's "Install from VSIX..." command. These "offline' packages are available at:

  • cpptools-linux.vsix - for 64-bit Linux
  • cpptools-linux32.vsix - for 32-bit Linux
  • cpptools-osx.vsix - for macOS
  • cpptools-win32.vsix - for 64-bit and 32-bit Windows

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives.
