If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade winapioverride -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

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

WinAPIOverride is an advanced api monitoring software for 32 and 64 bits processes.
You can monitor and/or override any function of a process.
This can be done for API functions or executable internal functions.

It tries to fill the gap between classical API monitoring softwares and debuggers.
It can break targeted application before or after a function call, allowing memory or registers changes; and it can directly call functions of the targeted application.

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).
