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 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

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade cavesofqud -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 cavesofqud -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

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

Exit $exitCode

Caves of Qud is a far-future roguelike in the tradition of the pen and paper classic, Gamma World. After a wearisome haul, you arrive at the desert oasis of Joppa. A watervine farmer greets you, “Live and drink, friend.” You peer over the salt-spangled huts toward a faint blue light on the horizon. Stretched before you are the vine-swathed ruins of Qud, an adventurer’s utopia. Every inch of Qud is diggable, meltable, destructible, and plunderable. Every character you build is completely unique. Explore vanished arcologies, smash errant robots, and plunder Qud’s chrome halls for technological treasures. Join up with the Barathrumites, a sect of tinker-monks led by an ancient, sentient cave bear named Barathrum. Or forge your own path and vie for power with hundreds of monsters and NPCs. No two games of Caves of Qud are remotely alike.

  New-Shortcut creates a new shortcut to a file or program.


  New-Shortcut wraps the COM Object, Wscript.Shell, and its arguments to create
  a shortcut to a file or program. It requires some very specific input, please
  review the notes on each parameter.


  The shortcut to create.

  The underlying COM Object requires an absolute path. This function will
  attempt to properly expand that path, especially if you provide a
  SpecialFolder as a root directory.

  The underlying COM Object also requires that the link's path/name end in
  either .lnk or .url. This function will attempt to add that file extension if
  it is not provided.

  The underlying COM Object will fail silently in many cases, especially due to
  improperly formatted link paths. This function will test the existence of the
  expected link using this parameter and fail if it is not found.


  The target of the shortcut.

  This path must exist. This function will attempt to expand the path to its
  absolute value.

  .PARAMETER SpecialFolder

  The Windows special folder to contain this shortcut.

  If you want to create a shortcut at one of the system managed paths, such as
  the Desktop or the Start Menu, you should use the special tokens provided.
  The most commonly used are

    * CommonDesktop
    * CommonStartup
    * CommonPrograms

  If you provide a special folder, the Link parameter may contain a simple
  "name" and not a file path.

  The full list of special folders can be found here:


  The icon of the shortcut.

  This can take several forms and, due to this, is not validated carefully. You
  can provide an absolute file path (this is your responsibility), like


  Or, you can provide an absolute file path and an index into the resources of
  that program, like

    "C:\Windows\notepad.exe, 1"

  .PARAMETER Description

  The tooltip to display on the shortcut.


  New-Shortcut -Link "foo" -Target "foo.exe" -SpecialFolder "CommonDesktop" -Description "The Foo program"


  Remove-Shortcut -Link "foo" -SpecialFolder "CommonDesktop"

function New-Shortcut {
    [Parameter(Mandatory = $true)]

    [Parameter(Mandatory = $true)]
    [ValidateScript({ Test-Path $_ })]
    [string] $Target,

  $Link = Resolve-ShortcutLink -Link $Link -SpecialFolder $SpecialFolder

  $shell = New-Object -ComObject 'Wscript.Shell'

  $shortcut = $shell.CreateShortcut($Link)
  $shortcut.TargetPath = (Resolve-Path $Target)
  $shortcut.WorkingDirectory = (Split-Path (Resolve-Path $Target))

  if($Icon) {
    $shortcut.IconLocation = $Icon

  if($Description) {
    $shortcut.Description = $Description


  if(-not(Test-Path $Link)) {

  Remove-Item $Link -Force | Out-Null

function Resolve-ShortcutLink {
    [Parameter(Mandatory = $true)]
    [string] $Link,

    [string] $SpecialFolder

  if(-not($Link.ToLower().EndsWith('.lnk') -or $Link.ToLower().EndsWith('.url'))) {
    $Link = "$Link.lnk"

  if($SpecialFolder) {
    $Link = Join-Path ([System.Environment]::GetFolderPath($SpecialFolder)) $Link
