    • 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.

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade folderchangesview -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 folderchangesview -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

FolderChangesView is a simple tool that monitors the folder or disk drive that you choose and lists every filename that is being modified, created, or deleted while the folder is being monitored.

You can use FolderChangesView with any local disk drive or with a remote network share, as long as you have read permission to the selected folder.

$packageName = 'folderchangesview'
$url = ''
$checksum = '3569cea65e0aefa331c04ae2ac008d71bb8f0fb37afa86303355e4eb64de010b'
$checksumType = 'sha256'
$toolsDir = "$(Split-Path -parent $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition)"
$installFile = Join-Path $toolsDir "$($packageName).exe"

Install-ChocolateyZipPackage -PackageName "$packageName" `
                             -Url "$url" `

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).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
