Recently I had a conversation with George Doubinski regarding an update required in Visual Studio to be able to work with the new Dynamics CRM 2015 SDK assemblies (it requires .Net 4.5.2 as the minimum .Net framework version). And he asked, you do use chocolatey to install the update, don’t you? And it was a shocking answer for him that I don’t know Chocolatey.
So, I quickly search and look at it: https://chocolatey.org/
Chocolatey NuGet is a Machine Package Manager, somewhat like apt-get, but built with Windows in mind.
I quickly install it and apply the .Net 4.5.2 Developer pack by executing the command: choco install netfx-4.5.2-devpack
Conclusion: Chocolatey is definitely a go-to tools to get an update for development tools.
