WebPI (Platform Installer) Command Line


Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator mwrock on 10/26/2014.

The Microsoft Web Platform Installer (Web PI) Command Line v5 makes it easy for you to download, install, and keep up to date on the latest software components of the Microsoft Web Platform for development and application hosting on the Windows operating system. Web PI does the work of comparing the newest available components across the Microsoft Web Platform against what is already installed on your computer; you can see what is new and what you haven't yet installed. You can use Web PI to learn more about different components and install one or more components in a chained installation, with Web PI handling reboots and logging failures where applicable.

To install WebPI (Platform Installer) Command Line, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install webpicmd

To upgrade WebPI (Platform Installer) Command Line, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade webpicmd

Virus Scan Results

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.
