Chocolatey - Windows Package manager


Chocolatey - Windows Package manager

This topic is not directly Qlik related, but I am sure many of you work on multiple environments and can benefit from automating and simplifying your setup work. I wanted to introduce a tool that makes my installation and test work easier and more efficient every day.

Chocolatey (https://chocolatey.org/) is software management automation for Windows, which simplifies and allows you to automate install, upgrade and uninstall of software in the Windows environment.

After installing Chocolatey Package Manager (https://chocolatey.org/install), you can simply manage installation via Powershell or Windows Command Prompt. Chocolatey provides over 5,000 packages (https://chocolatey.org/packages) with the most common software and releases. Below are a short list of the most common ones that I use, but take a look on the website for more package depending on what you commonly install on your environments. 

NOTE1: Run PowerShell elevated as Administrator, to ensure all installation operations are allowed.

NOTE2: Use --yes flag to force Yes on all conformation questions.

Install Chocolatey Package Manager (PowerShell)

Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))

Different commands can be executed to maintain the installed packages. Below are some examples of common packages to install while working with Qlik deployments.

Hi tko , It would be useful for a network administrator or BI analyst to have chocolatey packages of QlikView Desktop, Qlik Sense Desktop, NPrinting Designer, etc.

Search but I did not find them Do you know if these packages are available in a private repository?
