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 display-changer -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 display-changer -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

  • Display Changer changes your monitor’s resolution.
  • Display Changer runs your application. (optional)
  • Display Changer restores the original resolution. (optional)

Display Changer changes the display resolution, runs a program, then restores the original settings. It can also change the resolution permanently and rearrange monitors in a multiple-monitor setup. This is useful for games and home-theater computers. I wrote Display Changer because there are programs that require 640×480 with 256 colors or home-theater setups that want 1920×1080 with a 24 Hz refresh rate. Instead of changing Windows display settings manually, I wrote Display Changer to do it automatically.

Display Changer changes your desktop width, height, color depth, and refresh rate (frequency) temporarily or permanently (via command line switches). Display Changer can run another application in a specific display resolution and return to the previous resolution when the application finishes. Command line switches let you alter only certain settings and choose the best refresh rate (or a specific one).

There are Windows and Console editions for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. The Windows edition is best for creating shortcuts that quickly switch to the display configuration you want. The Console edition is best to use in a batch file or script.

Pricing

Display Changer is free for personal and educational use. If you’d like to use it in a commercial environment (e.g., to release with a product you sell, to release with a product you use internally, or to manage company computers), you must purchase a commercial license. In brief, a commercial license entitles your company to unlimited use of Display Changer.
