    If you specify a process to be closed but don’t add a deferral option to the Show-InstallationWelcome function, then it will only display to the user if there is a process to close, otherwise the installation will continue without showing the welcome dialog.

    It looks like you are not using the Deploy-Application.ps1 template. Since the Get-InstalledApplication cmdlet is in the first line of your script, the toolkit has not been dot-sourced and thus the cmdlet is not recognized. Please refer to the documentation that comes with the toolkit or alternatively read some of the online tutorials, like this one: https://replicajunction.github.io/tag/psadt/

    Use Set-PinnedApplication to pin to taskbar. AFAIK, you can’t pin to task bar using a reg mod, so you won’t be able to do this just for the default user.

    To set a registry key only for the default user;

    Invoke-HKCURegistrySettingsForAllUsers -RegistrySettings -UserProfiles (Get-UserProfiles | Where { $_.NTAccount -eq “Default User” })

    Using a task sequence sort of defeats the purpose of the toolkit. Office version and language detection can be done in the application model using a script. Refer to the documentation that comes with the toolkit for guidance on setting the buttons in the Show-InstallationPrompt function.

    Hi Shaun,

    This is disabled by design to prevent users from exiting the prompt without choosing a relevant installation response.

    The PersistPrompt parameter forces the window to return to focus/center in case the user tries to move it off screen.

    Hi Adam,

    Bureaucratic challenges are common in most organisations when looking to introduce a tool like this. The questions asked are absolutely fair.

    1. At present there are 4 developers on the team, with varying levels of activity. Rest assured we will continue to develop and support the toolkit. As it stands, the toolkit is stable and while there are no guarantees, there is no reason to believe that external factors will impact this, i.e. we would expect the current release to continue to work with SCCM and Windows 10 through the lifecycle of those products.

    2. The code is open source and publically available to review.

    3. The toolkit is licensed under the Microsoft Public License. Link to old website: http://psappdeploytoolkit.codeplex.com/license

    What I can also add is that the toolkit is used in many large global corporations and industries, including professional services, banking, government, military, retail, with seats including 50k, 80k & 300k+. If we had one of those slides that vendors show with their customer’s logos, you could expect to see some big names on there. The confidence that this should provide is that the toolkit is a staple in many organisations and has been proven operationally on millions of endpoints globally with different OS, languages, etc.

    Hope that helps.
    Sean

    Hi,

    The toolkit is developed by a small team of community developers. It is released under Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL)

    Cheers,

    [version]$adobeFlashVersion = Get-InstalledApplication “Adobe Flash” | select DisplayVersion -expand DisplayVersion

    If ($adobeFlashVersion -lt [version]”19.0.0.226″ -or $adobeFlashVersion -eq $null) {
    Execute-MSI -Action Install -Path “install_flash_player_11_plugin.msi”
