  1. This is perfect!

    I was looking for a way to add my private repo for company applications that we use internally to install on multiple computers.
    Do we need to add this to the bottom of the install.ps1 file from chocolatey or is this a standalone file? Any kind of brief setup guide would be great!

    Thank you!
