See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

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

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

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

XYplorer is a file manager for Windows. It features tabbed browsing, a powerful file search, a versatile preview, a highly customizable interface, optional dual pane, and a large array of unique ways to efficiently automate frequently recurring tasks. It’s fast, light, and portable.

XYplorerFree, the XYplorer Free Edition, is a free feature-limited version of XYplorer. No nags, no ads, no hassle. And no costs. You may use XYplorerFree for commercial and non-commercial purposes. Note that this is not some sort of trial version or bundled junk but a clean, fully working, and yet completely free file manager. There is only one catch: It won’t make coffee! Check out the Feature List to compare Pro and Free Edition:
