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://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://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade qgis -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 qgis -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

QGIS is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System (GIS) licensed under the GNU General Public License. QGIS is an official project of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo). It runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, Windows and Android and supports numerous vector, raster, and database formats and functionalities.

General Features

  • View data -- Spatially-enabled tables and views, vector formats, raster and imagery formats, GRASS raster and vector data and online spatial data.
  • Explore data and compose maps -- Interactively explore spatial data with a friendly GUI with many helpful tools.
  • Create, edit, manage and export data -- Vector and raster layers in several formats.
  • Analyze data -- vector analysis, sampling, geoprocessing, geometry and database management tools including the complete GRASS functionality of more than 400 modules.
  • Publish maps on the Internet -- QGIS can be used as a WMS, WMTS, WMS-C or WFS and WFS-T client, and as a WMS, WCS or WFS server.
  • Extensible functionality through plugins
  • Python console

This package will install the "Latest Release" version of QGIS with the richest feature set. If you want to install a version with more more stability but less features, try the package for QGIS-Long Term Release. These packages can now co-exist!

Keeping old releases

Upon installation/upgrade, this package will attempt to remove the newest installed version of QGIS. (It will not remove LTR versions installed via the Chocolatey package.) If you would like to skip the uninstallation of older versions, use the a "Keep" package parameter as follows:

choco install qgis -params '"/Keep"'

This parameter will be ignored if the newest version has the same major.minor value as this package because the QGIS installer won't allow two different builds of the same major.minor release. (I.E. Version 3.0.1 has the same "3.0" as version 3.0.3.) This parameter would allow you to keep a v2.18.x install of QGIS when upgrading to a v3.0.x package.

Uninstallation should remove only the installed, Chocolatey package version.

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).
