Windows

Use the Chocolatey package manager to install and maintain tools:

chocoinstall-basic.ps1
cinst
    7zip 7zip.commandline aescrypt agentransack bleachbit 
    ccleaner clink ConEmu dns-benchmark everything 
    findandreplace flashplayeractivex flashplayerplugin 
    Gow greenshot hashcheck javaruntime LinkShellExtension 
    markdown-edit MicrosoftSecurityEssentials mingw 
    NirLauncher notepad2-mod previewconfig processhacker 
    putty sysinternals treesizefree ultradefrag wincdemu 
    winscp

The 64-bit version of Notepad++ is not compatible with the Plugin Manager, so install the 32-bit version (unless you want to manually install and maintain plugins).

NOTE: Updating this package without specifying 32-bit will install the 64-bit version, removing the plugins. Update this package separately and before a cup all.

cinst notepadplusplus -x86

Additional core applications

The following applications are available via Chocolatey, but have their own update mechanisms, which should install updates faster than manually running choco update.

  • Google Chrome
    • Using Chocolatey: cinst googlechrome https-everywhere-chrome save-to-pocket-chrome pushbullet-chrome trello-chrome office-online-chrome

The following software does not yet have a Chocolatey package available:

  • WinMTR - combines the functionality of the traceroute and ping utilities in a single network diagnostic tool.
