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 cmake -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 cmake -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

CMake is a family of tools designed to build, test and package software. CMake is used to control the software compilation process using simple platform and compiler independent configuration files. CMake generates native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler environment of your choice.

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.

On behalf of the Kitware team and global CMake community, we are pleased to announce the release of CMake 2.8.9. There are several significant developments and enhancements with this release, including the new, default-enabled Ninja generator; a position-independent code target property, and MUMPS coverage support in CTest.

The Ninja generator is a replacement for Make, and uses all cores in a machine to enable faster builds by maximizing the ability to parallelize the build code. This is now enabled by default on Linux, Mac, and Windows. To see how this is leveraged for a dashboard machine, you can look at our CMake dashboard scripts.

The position-independent code target property automatically adds -fPIC and -fPIE compiler flags for compilers that require it when building static libraries, which makes it easy to avoid adding platform specifics to your CMakeLists.

Lastly, the MUMPS programming language now has coverage tools, with added support in CTest to include GTM and Cache. This is already in use by the OSEHRA community.

In addition to the above changes, there were many other improvements that can be seen in the change log. To get involved with CMake, download the latest release on the download page, join the mailing lists, and provide feedback through the bug tracker.

This package has no dependencies.
