    • Hi Damien,
      As other mentioned exe files are removed by antivirus. I am reluctant to make exceptions to the antivirus scan.
      The files are removed immediately so I can't even test it. Can you provide .ps1 file instead or compile it differently?
      Thanks
      Krzysztof

    • Is there a way to stop the mandatory reboot after every application install?
      I am using this as a post install for tech out in the field and so far when any application is installed there is a forced reboot.
      
      Is there a way to not have a reboot happen? 
      
      Can I install multiple apps if I desired?
      
      Thank you for a great tool!!

    • Do users need to local admins to install applications?
    • Applications are installed using the mdt process; so using system account from the task sequence.
