Manage Windows Credential Manager with PowerShell

Image
Some times when you are create a script you need to store some credentials for a specific command to work like connection to Azure or Office 365 storing the password in a file or in the script has always been something you just dont do. That is where leveraging the windows credential manager can be handy though PowerShell dosnt have this ability nativly you can get the ability by installing our Credential Management Module from PowerShell Gallery by running 

Install-Module-NameCredentialManagement
once installed you can store a credential with the Add-StoredCredentials comment and call it with the Get-StoredCredentials command




One thing to keep in mind the credentials are stored on a per user basis which means the PowerShell console needs to be running as the user that wrote the credentials to Windows Credential Manager.

ISOBurn 2.3.8

Image
We have just released iso2usb 2.3.8, However you may have noticed the name has changed. Due to some bad people out there we found our application had the same name as malware leading to our application being flagged by some anti-virus applications. So we desided to change then name to ISOBurn.

A few changes you will notice is the layout of the application, ISOBurn is no longer a single exe. We did this to make future changes easier and allow for more robust feature. Once such feature is the ability to stop the application for checking for updates. You can do this by going to the app folder and opening the settings.ini file with note pad. Edit the line CheckForUpdates=True and change True to False. You will also notice the AllowBurnToSystem this setting allows the application to burn an iso to a system volume erasing the current os.

We did fix one major bug and that with an issue not properly notifying the user of an update.

As always you can get the latest version from the ISOBurn pr…

Message Handling - V 1.0.0

Image
Message Handling is PowerShell Module designed to write a message to a log file, Event log or PowerShell host window and provide the ability to perform a task based on the message type.

The Module can be imported and will provide a Write-Message function. The Write-Message function can also be used as a standalone PowerShell script. The idea of the Write-Message command is to write an Error, Warning, Information or Success message to a desired forum and perform an action based on the message type.


The module is designed to be flexible to fit most needs. To perform an action based on the message type there are 4 internal functions Invoke-Error, Invoke-Warning, Invoke-information and Invoke-SuccessAudit. Code can be added to each function to additions task will be performed when a message of that type is written.

We have updated iso2usb to version 2.2.7. In this edition we have optimizes the GUI and added a few quality of life changes such as making the burn button the default button (hitting enter will count as clicking the button).

iso2usb can be downloaded from the software page here.

PEBuilder 5.0.1.2 Update

Image
A few weeks ago we release PEBuilder 5.0.0.1 this was to fix an issue that stopped applications from being added to the WinPE image. It appears that while compiling PEBuilder we made a typo that recreated the issue instead of fixing the issue we have corrected that in PEBuilder 5.0.1.2 and brought you a few other features. One big change you will see right away is that we have changed the WinPE architecture area to WinPE builds. We have added some preset configurations to choose from to help make the build process smother but don't worry you can still choose to create your own custom image. The other feature we added is the ability to export and import your settings so that you can now save all the configuration changes you have made to be used later.

ISO2USB Update to version 2.1.6.0

Image
ISO2USB is one of our most popular tools and as such we constantly are looking to make it better. Last week we released update 2.1.5.0 in that version we fixed a few issues like not being able to format to NTFS and we updated the GUI to give the tool a cleaner look and a more snappy feel. During the process of making the changes we found that the progress bar was not working correctly so we make the decision to remove it and replace it with a status message box. Well we have not fixed that and put the progress bar back into the application along with a few performance fixes that will make the application run much better. As of right now ISO2USB still only works on windows 10 but we are working on a windows 7 edition that we hope to release soon.
As always you can get the newest version of ISO2USB from the ISO2USB web page on our main page
