  1. I seem to be having some issues with it, it is downloading the file, but no settings seem to be changing
  2. Hi, I created a script to basically inform the customer (they have to click ok to start it) then perform a bunch of maintenance things once per week. I tried it but none of it seems to be working, even my pop-up command doesnt seem to be working when i run a script with just that, ideas? #inform customer and enable pulseway maintenance mode Add-Type -AssemblyName PresentationFramework [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('FarSide Tech Repairs - Automated Monthly Maintenance will begin.
