#InstChoco - The ULTIMATE Chocolatey and Chocolatey packages (re)installer!

##QUESTION: "Why do I need an installer for Chocolatey when I already have Chocolatey installed?"

##ANSWER: You need InstChoco for the NEXT time you want to install Chocolatey and automate package (re)installation!

**InstChoco** is the evolution of an old batch file I used over the years to automate installing Chocolatey followed by a bunch of "choco install program -y" commands to install my standard set of packages. I eventually decided to make it a program with additional features. I also integrated with other Chocolatey packages I've created. What you see now is the culmination of many long hard hours of work. I think **InstChoco** is the best it can be, but I'm always open to new features. Feel free to contact me with feedback. You can find **InstChoco.exe** in \ProgramData\chocolatey\lib\instchoco\tools. If you don't already have Chocolatey installed you can download **InstChoco** from [SOFTPEDIA](, [CNET's](, or [directly from my GitHub repo](
