Due to certain circumstances, my Windows user account has been remade, and only the AppData files have been transferred to the new profile without the registry contents.

At present, I am attempting to recover the installation status of my applications that were installed using chocolatey. However, when I attempt to install an app called “foo” using choco, I receive a notification indicating that something is not working correctly.

foo v1.2.3 already installed.
 Use --force to reinstall, specify a version to install, or try upgrade.

Is there a way to compel a complete reinstallation of all the applications that are currently installed?
