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

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade ultrasearch -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 ultrasearch -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

UltraSearch Free searches files and folders on local NTFS drives and provides the results within just a few seconds.

UltraSearch Free achieves its speed by its innovative usage of the MFT (Master File Table) of NTFS partitions. No permanent index stored on your hard disks is required: UltraSearch Free uses only the system memory for indexing. The flexible search tool will even identify NTFS hardlinks.

You can enter a file name, a pattern like *.EXE or a regular expression and you will see the results within seconds. Searching for file types like 'Office Files' as well as searching for file content are supported. Additional file information like file size, file dates, or file attributes can be displayed.

Folders, files, or file types can be excluded from the search. The search results can be sorted according to different criteria, printed, or exported as Excel, Text, CSV, HTML or RTF file.

Recently used search patterns can be saved and selected from a drop-down list. UltraSearch Free can be started from the context menu of your Windows Explorer - starting a search within the selected folder could not be easier. The result list of UltraSearch Free also provides a context menu which supports known file operations like the 'Open', 'Copy' or 'Move' operation.

Installation instructions:
UltraSearch Free is automatically installed in English to your "Program Files" folder.
There are two parameters you can give to the installer if you add "-params" to the installation command:

  1. "/dir=Your_Dir"
    Changes the installation location to "Your_Dir".

  2. "/lang=DE"
    Changes the language from English to German. There are no other supported languages.

cinst ultrasearch -params "/dir=C:\Users\Administrator\Admin Tools\ /lang=de"

if ($env:chocolateyPackageParameters -match '/lang=') {$param=$env:chocolateyPackageParameters} Else {$param="/LANG=EN"+" "+$env:chocolateyPackageParameters}

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.
