Scripts and Other Utilities

All current documentation scripts require PowerShell Version 3 or later and create a Microsoft Word 2010 or 2013 document.

Most documentation scripts have been updated to support Word 2016.

Most documentation scripts will also create formatted text and HTML output so Microsoft Word is not required.

*****All scripts perform best with PowerShell Version 5*****

Each documentation script has either six or seven parts:

  1. ReadMe file
  2. Change Log
  3. Unsigned script with PS1 extension
  4. Unsigned script with TXT extension
  5. Signed script with PS1 extension
  6. Signed script with TXT extension
  7. Sample Software Exclusions file with TXT extension (XenApp scripts only)

Creates an unlinked Group Policy Object from an imported CSV file.

If the Group Policy Object exists, linked or unlinked, it is updated with the settings from the imported CSV file.

The CSV file is created using Darren Mar-Elia’s Registry .Pol Viewer Utility

The Registry.pol files only contain settings from the Administrative Templates node in the Group Policy Management Console.

This script is designed for consultants and trainers who may create Group Policies in a lab and need a way to recreate those policies at a customer or training site.

The GroupPolicy module is required for the script to run.

On a server, Group Policy Management must be installed.
On a workstation, RSAT is required.
