Chocolatey ISO helpers extension

This is a Chocolatey extension that simplifies building Chocolatey packages that require deployments via ISO files.

NOTE: This package requires PowerShell 3 or higher


Install via chocolatey: choco install chocolatey-isomount.extension.

The module is usually automatically installed as a dependency.


To create a package that uses a function from this extension add the following to the nuspec specification:

    <dependency id="chocolatey-isomount.extension" version="SPECIFY_LATEST_VERSION" />

NOTE: Make sure you use adequate minimum version.

To test the functions you can import the module directly or via the chocolateyInstaller.psm1 module:

PS> import-module $Env:ChocolateyInstall\helpers\chocolateyInstaller.psm1
PS> import-module $Env:ChocolateyInstall\extensions\chocolatey-isomount\*.psm1

You can now test any of the functions:

$packageName= 'bob'
$toolsDir   = "$(Split-Path -Parent $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition)"
$url        = ''

$packageArgs = @{
    packageName   = $packageName
    fileType      = 'msi'
    url           = $url
    file          = 'setup.msi'
    file64        = 'x64\setup64.msi'
    silentArgs    = "/qn /norestart"
    validExitCodes= @(0, 3010, 1641)
    softwareName  = 'Bob*'
    checksum      = '12345'
    checksumType  = 'sha256'

Install-ChocolateyIsoPackage @packageArgs

Keep in mind that function may work only in the context of the chocolateyInstaller.ps1.

To get the list of functions, load the module directly and invoke the following command:

Get-Command -Module chocolatey-isomount

To get the help for the specific function use man:

man Install-ChocolateyIsoPackage
