Which is newer.
But is not the version specified in the "version" flag
The reason the command runs multiple times with the same version is just how the scripted environment I have works
Chris Blyth
@BlythMeister
@gep13 does that make sense?

@ferventcoder
@BlythMeister a log would be most helpful. Note that choco does not error if you pass in options incorrectly, so a typo could be the issue
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@BlythMeister as @ferventcoder mentioned, I think some logs here to dig into what happened would be good. I have tried to reproduce the problem, but there isn't a 1.4.1 package version of that package on chocolatey.org. Are you installing from your own internal repository? If so, information about your environment would also help

@BlythMeister
Sorry I can't type! It's 4.1.0.
Which log would be useful? And did I need to run with any extra options?
choco upgrade teamcityagenr --confirm --use-system-powershell --allow-empty-checksums --no-progress --fail-on-standard-error --version=4.1.0 --package-parameters="Params here"

choco upgrade teamcityagent --confirm --use-system-powershell --allow-empty-checksums --no-progress --fail-on-standard-error --version=4.1.0 --package-parameters="Params here"

Oh....I think I found an issue in my script...that version (which is dynamic) was never making it in...
So...I think it's me...

@BlythMeister glad to hear that you got it sorted!

How do I remove someone from "Package Maintainer(s):" ? I set <owners>rattkin</owners> a long time ago but the old guys are still there. Now one of them actively asked to be removed. https://chocolatey.org/packages/microsip
Paul Broadwith
@pauby
@rattkin Setting the <owners> field in the package doesn't affect being an owner of the package on the Chocolatey.org website. To remove a package maintainer, go to the package page, make sure you are logged in and select 'Manage Maintainers' from the left hand side.

I had a look at Install-ChocolateyExplorerMenuItem, If I use in my package should I remove the registry key manually or it does it automatically in the uninstall script?

@naveen521kk
I am asking that because for PATH it must be done so.

hi does anyone here use business product?
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@fac3le55 I would imagine there are folks in here that do, but this area is overwhelmingly more of the open source community than commercial customers.

Hi, I have a question about AU module. I'm trying to set-up an update.ps1 for a package which contains only a downloaded*.exe. All is fine until the AU module tries to find the downloaded file, example:

tasmotizer - checking updates using au version 2019.5.22

URL check
  https://github.com/tasmota/tasmotizer/releases/download/v.1.2/tasmotizer-1.2.exe

New version is available

@TheBossProSniper
When I use Chocolatey upgrade, does it uninstall an existing version of the specified software and install a more updated version?
n3rd4i
@n3rd4i
@TheBossProSniper Depending on the package this can vary. It could be that the old version is not uninstalled automatically with the new version, meaning [old] some residual files still exist.

I am trying to setup some DSC, I am new to this. I think I need want to use Chocolatey. Does anyone have good, and current, documentation links I can research? I find a lot of 2017 type stuff with Powershell DSC and cChoco, but I am not sure if that is the current best practice, seems like there is a lot of wholes in what I am reading.
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@TalMcMahon have you clicked on the organizations tab of https://chocolatey.org/install? Then click on the PS DSC and follow the instructions. HTH

@TalMcMahon
@ferventcoder I was looking more for "Should i be doing this?" I am not sure if I should be trying to mix Azure Devops Pipeline agents and Chocolatey DSC or if they are different beasts that should be separate

Hello all (again). I asked this before, but I was too late to follow up.

I can't seem to convince chocolatey to NOT use proxy, even though C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\config\chocolatey.config has no mention of said proxy.

Any ideas on where else to look? System (i.e. wininet proxy) is empty (or pointing to a completely different server) and environment variables HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY do not exist.

Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@gschizas just to confirm, have you seen, and read through the docs here: https://chocolatey.org/docs/proxy-settings-for-chocolatey
Paul Broadwith
@pauby
@/all There is currently a backlog of packages working its way through the Package Verifier. The Package Verifier is working through the queue and will get to your package as soon as possible. See the status page for more information. Please bear with us and thanks for your patience!

@gep13 I have installed chocolatey. It just refuses to work if I don't have Fiddler running.
I'm sure I made the change once, but I can't find where I did that change.
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@gschizas to the best of my knowledge, all the places that Chocolatey uses to identify if a proxy "should" be used is in those docs. If all of those aren't set, then I am not sure where else it would be finding that information
George Schizas
@gschizas
First of all, environment:
PS C:\Users\GSchizas>echo "[[[$($env:http_proxy):::$($env:https_proxy)]]]"
[[[:::]]]
INETCPL.CPL settings are also empty
And also config file:
PS C:\Users\GSchizas>choco config get proxy
Chocolatey v0.10.15
(it's empty)
Any other ideas?
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
What about $env:http_proxy and $env:https_proxy
George Schizas
@gschizas
This was the first one I checked :)

@gep13
@gschizas apologies, I missed that. Short answer is, I am not sure what else to suggest here.

@adriens The package-verifier queue is coming down, so you should start to see packages getting through the verification process this week, yes.
