Today, I devoted a few hours to learning about Chocolatey.org and how I could use it in my VMware Horizon View VDI environment. All was going well, until I started attempting some cinst commands using the “-installArguments”. My installations stopped working and I received this error:
Exception calling "DownloadString" with "1" argument(s): "The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error."
After re-reading some documentation and fiddling with some syntax, I decided to see if I could visit Chocolatey.org. Turns out, their site was down, which is why my installations were failing.
I notified the @chocolateynuget account on Twitter and a few of their followers who looked like developers. Good luck restoring service.
