Managing the default user

I made a lot of package in the past and I have a few questions.
  1. Is it a way with your script to change the default user parameters?
  2. If I need to change every users value in the registry, is it a way to load each hive and unload it?
  3. Is it a way to check if a user is logon then if noone is logon proceed. If someone is logon then ask to close applications and ask before reboot. I remember my problem was when asking to shutdown and when "not asking" and just proceed.
  4. I saw nothing about permission change (files, registry).
  5. We are using package instead of applications. Would it be any problems to use the APT for packages?

A lot of different questions here and not very many details but I will take a stab at answering.

1) If you are talking about registry changes for the default user, then yes, there is a function for this. Look at the 3.5 beta under the "Source Code" tab.
2) There is a method in the 3.5 beta. Look at the 3.5 beta under the "Source Code" tab.
3) The toolkit has a method for dealing with this situation.
4) There is no built in function for modifying permissions. Tons of examples and functions on Google, so look around.
5) Toolkit should work just fine for packages or applications in SCCM.

I would recommend you read the documentation and test the 3.5 beta from the Source Code tab if you're just looking into using the toolkit. Ask more detailed questions once you have because most of your questions will be answered just looking at the documentation.

You did understand perfectly my question. I did not saw there is a 3.5 toolkit. I am actually writing standard packaging procédures with Powershell and I will possibly include this toolkit. When the 3.5 might become stable?
