Running the Install.ps1 on a virtual machine deployed into Azure, will install and configure the following items:

  1. Set regional settings (currently supports en-AU, en-GB, en-US)
  2. Configures image customisations including the default profile, Start menu & taskbar
  3. Installs supported Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables
  4. Installs the latest Microsoft FSLogix Apps agent

Locale

03_RegionLanguage.ps1 will configure regional settings on the local machine, but will default to en-AU. To configure other regional settings, use the following command in the current PowerShell session, before running Install-Apps.ps1, with a value of en-US, or en-GB. For example:

Set locale
1
$Env:Locale = "en-GB"

Steps

  1. First, ensure that you are using a PowerShell as an administrator. Find PowerShell in the Start menu, right-click on the shortcut and choose Run as Administrator
  2. Optionally set the value of Locale as covered in the section above
  3. Run Install-Apps.ps1 and install applications - copy the following command:

    Run Install-Apps.ps1
    1
    Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; [System.Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [System.Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol -bor 3072; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/aaronparker/w365/main/Install.ps1'))
    
  4. Paste the code into the PowerShell prompt that you have chosen to run as administrator

  5. Wait for the command to run. If the script does not produce any errors, then the application listed above should be installed - validate by checking the applications in the Settings app or Programs and Features in Control Panel.
