ceterion modular Packaging Framework
A PowerShell module based packaging framework.
This packaging framework contains parts of the PowerShell App Deployment Toolkit (Version 3.6.9) project from http://psappdeploytoolkit.com/ with some modifications and custom extensions. The modification includes a conversion from a simple included script into an PowerShell module and it's extended with some additional functions and variables we missed in the original implementation.
First make sure you start your PowerShell session with local admin permissions. When UAC is enabled make sure to start an elevated Powershell session. Also make sure your PowerShell execution policy is configured to run scripts, i.e. you can configure it with this PowerShell command:
To import the module use the following PowerShell command:
To Initialize the runtime variables use the following PowerShell command:
The get a list of all included command use the following PowerShell command:
