Here is the definition of chocolatey as stated on the website.

Chocolatey NuGet is a Machine Package Manager, somewhat like apt-get, but built with windows in mind.

Chocolatey can be easily installed.

To install chocolatey now, open a powershell prompt (execution policy needs to be unrestricted – Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted), paste the following and type Enter:

PS:> iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString(“”))

And Chocolatey also has a GUI if you like those kinds of things. Yeah I wrote that GUI, sorry.

And now I added sqlcop to chocolatey which makes it dead easy to install.

Just type cinst sqlcop in your favorite command prompt or use the GUI and sqlcop will be there for you. It will also place a shortcut on your desktop for you to have easy access to sqlcop.

So now you have no more excuse not to install chocolatey and sqlcop.

Making a chocolatey package is easy BTW.
