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 prometheus-wmi-exporter.install -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 prometheus-wmi-exporter.install -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

This package is likely a meta/virtual (*) or an installer (*.install) or portable (*.portable) application package.

  • Meta/virtual (*) - has a dependency on the *.install or the *.portable package - it is provided for discoverability and for other packages to take a dependency on.
  • Portable (*.portable/*.commandline (deprecated naming convention)/*.tool (deprecated naming convention)) - usually zips or archives that require no administrative access to install.
  • Install (*.install/*.app (deprecated naming convention)) - uses native installers, usually requires administrative access to install.

Learn more about chocolatey's distinction of installed versus portable apps and/or learn about this kind of package.

This package was approved as a trusted package on 25 May 2020.

Package parameters

The following package parameters can be set:

  • EnabledCollectors - A comma-separated list of collectors to enable in the exporter. Options and defaults in "Collectors" section below.
  • ListenAddress - The IP address to bind to. Defaults to
  • ListenPort - The port to bind to. Defaults to 9182.
  • MetricsPath - The path at which to serve metrics. Defaults to /metrics.
  • TextFileDir - Specifies a directory for the textfile collector (equivalent to the flag).
  • ExtraFlags - Allows passing full CLI flags. Defaults to an empty string.

These parameters can be passed to the installer with the use of --params.
For example: --params '"/EnabledCollectors:cpu,dns,iis /ListenPort:9182"'.


A table of the provided collectors, including those enabled by default, is available at the project page here:

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).
