Personal dev boxstarter scripts
######## Phil's dev VM boxstarter script ########
###############
#### NOTES ####
###############
## After a restart/reconnect, even though it shows the login screen, boxstarter is still working
### NOTES when kicking off remotely from host to VM, fails on Configuring CredSSP settings
## check http://blogs.technet.com/b/heyscriptingguy/archive/2012/12/30/understanding-powershell-remote-management.aspx
### MISC NOTES
## Boxstarter repeats the _entire_ script after restart. For already-installed packages, Chocolatey will take a couple seconds each to verify. This can get tedious, so consider putting packages that require a reboot near the beginning of the script.
## Boxstarter automatically disables windows update so you don't need to do that at the beginning of the script.
## you still want to Restart or Update and Restart afterwards - and to ensure UAC is enabled
### STATISTICS
## took 1:20 hours on an Azure VM with SSD
## required 4 reboots
## VS 2017 with 2 workloads took 28:23 minutes
## 6 Windows updates took 19:01 minutes
### HACK Workaround choco / boxstarter path too long error
## https://github.com/chocolatey/boxstarter/issues/241
$ChocoCachePath = "$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Local\Temp\chocolatey"
