Install Chocolatey on Windows

less than 1 minute read

Refer to this page for more information.

  1. First, ensure that you are using an administrative shell.
  2. Install with powershell.exe
  3. With PowerShell, you must ensure Get-ExecutionPolicy is not Restricted. It’s better to use Bypass to bypass the policy to get things installed or AllSigned for quite a bit more security.
    • Run Get-ExecutionPolicy. If it returns Restricted, then run Set-ExecutionPolicy AllSigned or Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process.
  4. Now run this command in powershell:
Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; [System.Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [System.Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol -bor 3072; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString(''))
  1. Wait a few seconds for the command to complete. If you don’t see any errors, you are ready to use Chocolatey! Type choco or choco -?
