Chocolatey Package Manager

Following on my last blog post about Chocolatey, we will build on that knowledge and use the Chocolatey package manager to install Google Crohome without user or admin intervenes.

The playbook below will use the Win_Chocolatey module to install Google Chrome. It is important to notice that you will need to install the Chocolatey package manager and core extension first before running this playbook as shown here.

      win_chocolatey:
