Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

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


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • 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. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade windows-kill -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO 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 windows-kill -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

Description

Send signal to process by PID in Windows, like POSIX kill
Windows has no process signaling mechanism like what POSIX provide using the kill command. But windows-kill could send signal to process by PID

## Features
* Support both 32bit (Win32) and 64bit (x64) Windows
* Support both SIGNBREAK (Ctrl + Break) and SIGINT (Ctrl + C) Signals

## Usage Examples
Using the windows-kill is easy and straightforward. It's just like POSIX kill. If signal sending was successful or any error occurred during the sending, appropriate message will be printed in cmd.

### Sending signal to PID
windows-kill -SIGNALTYPE PID

### Sending SIGBREAK (Ctrl + Break) to sample 1234 PID
windows-kill -SIGBREAK 1234 windows-kill -1 1234

### Sending SIGINT (Ctrl + C) to sample 1234 PID
windows-kill -SIGINT 1234 windows-kill -2 1234

### List supported signal types
windows-kill -l

### Usage help
windows-kill -h

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).
