      These scripts are great. Has anyone had any luck parsing these into a spreadsheet friendly format?


      • Carl Webster Says:

        There is a -CSV switch for the Appendixes. I know of no one who has taken the output and made it spreadsheet friendly. You can look at the Text output option.

        Will create a CSV file for each Appendix.
        The default value is False.

        Output CSV filename is in the format:


        For example:



    2. Mike Pagán Says:

      Q: I see that the documentation output uses version numbers like for the Citrix Virtual Apps but I can’t seem to find a matrix where that maps back to published version (Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7 version 1909 for example). Where does that version come from and is there a way to map it back to CVAD versions?


      • Carl Webster Says:

        No, I just build it in the script.

        #V2.28 build real version
        $tmp = $Script:XDSiteVersion
        Switch ($tmp)
        “7.23” {$Script:XDSiteVersion = “1909”}
        “7.22” {$Script:XDSiteVersion = “1906”}
        “7.21” {$Script:XDSiteVersion = “1903”}
        “7.20” {$Script:XDSiteVersion = “1811”}
        “7.19” {$Script:XDSiteVersion = “1808”}
        Default {$Script:XDSiteVersion = $tmp}
