Additionally, there are some naming rules that can be applied to file names:

  • Files with “Sample” in the name Skipped
  • Files with “Undo” in the name Skipped
  • Files with “TSYes” in the name Applied if C:\_SMSTaskSequence\OSConfig\OSConfig.cmd does exists
  • Files with “TSNo” in the name Applied if C:\_SMSTaskSequence\OSConfig\OSConfig.cmd does NOT exist
  • Files with “Modern” in the name Applied if the Operating System is not Windows XP
  • Files with “x86” in the name Applied if the Operating System is x86
  • Files with “x64” in the name Applied if the Operating System is x64
  • Files with “RunOnce” in the name Only applied once, then moved to C:\Windows\OSConfig\Settings\RunOnce

These will be discussed in more detail in separate posts

Tool: OSConfig Registry Backup


OSConfig will create a backup of most of the Registry before and after the main routine is executed in C:\Windows\OSConfig\Registry\Backup.  This allows for your to validate any changes that were made by OSConfig, or to use them to reset a setting to default.  As you can see they are sorted in pairs showing an export before and after OSConfig has run.

Tool: OSConfig Logs


After OSConfig has completed running, the content to OSConfig will be persistent in C:\Windows\OSConfig

In our first run, we provided the $OEM$, Settings, and Theme directories, but Logs and Registry are created by OSConfig.  This post will review the Logs directory

OSConfig Main Page


I’ve made some changes to OSConfig that change some of my previous posts, so I’m going to go through and update everything.  Here are the changes:

  • Sample Reg files have been removed so I can work on a template
  • Sample directory has been added.  Appx and a Windows 10 theme are in there for now
  • Minor changes to the VBS and WSF scripts themselves.  Make sure you get the latest update from GitHub.  For download instructions, read Tool: OSConfig Download
