Chocolatey is a package manager for Windows. In this page, I keep track of packages I’m using for future reference.

I use a custom install location for Chocolatey. At home: C:\opt\chocolatey and at work C:\ecommerce\chocolatey (due to IT policy restrictions). This is defined in the environment variable ChocolateyInstall.
