Installer update kills ConEmu session #156
Once installer starts it forcibly closes conemu with all tabs including chocolatey console.
It is practically impossible to update ConEmu binaries within ConEmu session. Even detaching consoles will not behave properly because of http://conemu.github.io/en/ConEmuHk.html
ConEmu has its own auto update procedure which consider all issues.
But with chocolatey... Hmm. I'm not sure if it's possible at the moment. Update must be started outside of ConEmu window somehow.

I've used Chocolately and ConEmu for quite awhile and this problem recently happened to me because I recently made ConEmu the default term per https://conemu.github.io/en/DefaultTerminal.html
Is there a switch or something to launch an admin console using cmd -new_console:z ?
Yes, I would restart ConEmu / any console after the Choco update. However, that is not the issue I'm asking about because ConEmu crashes with the Choco update.
To prevent ConEmu crashing during update with Choco, I want to run Choco in an admin term that is not ConEmu. Since ConEmu is now the default term, how do I start the admin term?
