Help with Chocolatey
is it possible to incorporate chocolatey package manager with snapin? batch file as snapin to call the chocolatey package for example “choco install adobereader” ?
I seen another post here by @apathetic_admin but didnt really specify the sample batch script. apathethicadmin, care to share? thanks!
@Avaryan Thanks matey.
I shouldve mentioned my environment on my post. Windows 10 Enterprise and I just tested with the powershell script you mentioned.
Thanks and really really appreciated!
I haven’t tried this, but since Chocolatey is already installed it would probably be easiest to just use a PowerShell script.
I did this on my Windows 10 PC with PowerShell 5. This is using PowerShell’s new package manager and adding the Chocolatey site as a provider.
# Adding the Chocolately repository. Install-PackageProvider chocolatey -Force # Installing the adobereader package from the Chocolatey provider. Install-Package -Name adobereader -Provider Chocolatey -Force
Again, haven’t tested it. What you want to do should definitely be possible though.
Note: No idea what version of Windows or PowerShell you’re running. Windows 10 comes with the Package Manager and PowerShell 5. Windows 7 you can update to PowerShell 4.0 and then manually install the Package Manager. There is an MSI file somewhere on a Microsoft site about it.
