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 miktex -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 miktex -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

This package is likely a meta/virtual (*) or an installer (*.install) or portable (*.portable) application package.

  • Meta/virtual (*) - has a dependency on the *.install or the *.portable package - it is provided for discoverability and for other packages to take a dependency on.
  • Portable (*.portable/*.commandline (deprecated naming convention)/*.tool (deprecated naming convention)) - usually zips or archives that require no administrative access to install.
  • Install (*.install/*.app (deprecated naming convention)) - uses native installers, usually requires administrative access to install.

Description

MiKTeX (pronounced mick-tech) is an up-to-date implementation of TeX/LaTeX and related programs. TeX is a typesetting system written by Donald Ervin Knuth who says that it is intended for the creation of beautiful books - and especially for books that contain a lot of mathematics.

MiKTeX comes with TeXworks, a TeX frontend which you can use it to edit and preview LaTeX documents.

FancyLaTeXOutput
The sky is the limit when it comes to TeX/LaTeX, with drawings, chemical equations, syntax trees, circuit diagrams, mathematical expressions, proof systems, chessboards and more! (Image source)

MiKTeX's integrated package manager installs missing components from the Internet, if required.

Package Set Parameter (optional)

  • /Set:(option) - Download and install the essential, basic (default), or complete set of TeX packages/tools.

Custom Repository Parameter (optional)

This package has only the MiKTeX setup utility embedded. Any new install of MiKTeX involves using the setup utility to download and create a (temporary by default) repository and then installing from that repository. This Chocolatey package can both establish a more permenant repository (for sharing with other computers) and use a specific (possibly private) repository from which to install MiKTeX. Thus a single computer within a network could download MiKTeX from the internet and create a repository, and all other computers on the network could use that repository to install MiKTeX saving external bandwidth.

Using a Custom Repository:

  • /RepoPath:(path) - with a share or URL as (path). This will install or update MiKTeX from a specific existing repository. No attempt to update the repository itself will be made. Upgrades should use this repository in the future by default.

Creating a Custom Repository:

  • /RepoPath:(path) - with a local directory as (path). This will create (or update) the repository in the (non-temporary) location. MiKTeX will also be installed. Note: The repository will not be shared or accessible through a URL without additional administrator actions and will not be removed on an uninstall.

Examples:

choco install miktek.install --params '"/Set:complete /RepoPath:""c:\Shared Files\MiKTeX-Repo"""'
Double-double quotes (i.e. ""path"") are necessary for paths containing a space.

choco install miktek.install --params '"/RepoPath:https://localserver.org/MiKTeX-Repo"'

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.
