Powershell Tool : Compare two computer configuration - New Version


One important task when you work on master is to check that there is no missing configuration or parameter between the new and previous release.
For instance to check services status on the same computer but different master release.

Last year I presented a tool that export configuration of your computer and compare two computer configurations :

  • Services
  • Software
  • Hotfix
  • Drivers
  • Process
Today I will present you the new version of this tool with a new design, using Elysium.
In this new version you can also export and compare below parameters :
  • Power options
  • Performance rate


How to get the tool ?

New design

I used XAML and Powershell with Elysium.
You can find here how to implement XAML and Elysium with Powershell.

I also integrated a new external ProgressBar, as below :
