This is a group of PowerShell scripts that provide a minimal graphical interface intended to aid in common configuration tasks for Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 and the Core editions of Microsoft Windows Server 2012. It is built directly from the scripts
in Core Config 2.0, but it is being worked on by a completely different team.

- From the Downloads page, acquire the ZIP or ISO distribution
- If you have downloaded the ZIP version, you must unblock it using one of the following methods:
- In Windows Explorer, go to Properties of the file, and click the "Unblock" button.
- In PowerShell, use the Unblock-File cmdlet.
- Create a folder on the root of the target system. Ex: MD C:\Corefig
- Copy the contents of the ZIP or ISO to the newly created folder.
- Delete the folder created in step 3 of the installation instructions.
- Delete the "Corefig" folder created under %ALLUSERSPROFILE% (C:\ProgramData on most systems)
- If you wish to reverse the PowerShell execution policy set by Corefig, open a PowerShell prompt and run the following:
Set-ExecutionPolicy Restricted (note that other scripts you use may rely on a RemoteSigned or looser policy)
This tool can only be run from the console of the system to be managed.
- At a command prompt, switch to the folder that you created in step 3 of the installation instructions, ex:
CD /D C:\Corefig
- For the first run, run: CSCRIPT Start_corefig.wsf
- You may use the Start_corefig script on each run, but on successive runs you could use the following instead:
