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 winmute -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 winmute -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

Description

WinMute automatically mutes your PC volume if you lock your screen or the screensaver is running.


bin\changelog.txt
Version 1.4.3 (2016-08-11)
 * Maintenance release, no new features
 * Upgraded to new compiler toolset
 * Removed Windows XP as I can also no longer test it and as Visual Studio 2015
   no longer supports this platform.
 * Use more modern UI elements

Version 1.4.1/1.4.2 (2014-07-17)

 * Fixed screensaver muting: It sometimes happened that WinMute
   muted Windows Audio for no apparent reason and "forgot" to
   unmute. This is now fixed.

Version 1.4 (2014-07-10)

 * WinMute can now also mute if the screensaver starts
   Due to windows restrictions, unmuting the audio can take up to one second
   after the screensaver resumes.

 * Added a toggle switch to configure if WinMute should unmute at all after
   a workstation lock or a screensaver run

Version 1.3 (2012-02-23)

 * Right-click menu is now correctly dismissed if the user clicks somewhere
   outside of the menu.

 * Embedded Visual C++ 2010 DLLs. This increases file size by about 100kb, but
   enables the usage of this tool in workplaces that do not have deployed the
   Visual C++ 2010 Runtime Environment yet.

 * Vista/7/8: Correctly mute the new device, if the default audio endpoint
   changes.

 * XP: Greatly improved hardware detection code. WinMute now mutes all devices,
   instead of just setting the volume of the first device it finds to zero.
   If the Mute-Button is locked via Group Policies, WinMute will try to
   use the Volume Slider to "emulate" sound muting.

 * XP: Actively tries to prevent other programs from unmuting the system.

Version 1.2 (2011-05-30)

 * Fixed a bug where WinMute could malfunction if the audio
   device was changed or disconnected during a windows session.

Version 0.0 - 1.1

 * These documents have been lost forever...
