Changelog: Set-CsFeatures.ps1

This is the changelog page for Script: Set-CsFeatures.ps1 – Easily Install Prerequisites and Tools for Lync Server 2013 and Skype for Business Server 2015/2019. You will find a complete list of released versions, their dates, and the features and issues addressed in each. Please refer to the script’s main page for more information including download links, installation details, and more.

v5.1 – 10-05-2018

  1. Added more bugs to fix later. πŸ™‚
  2. Added detection around Visual C++ 2017 – mostly for logging as the version in the Skype for Business Server 2017 Preview bits is newer than what’s publicly available.
  3. Added option 90-14 – Remove Windows Defender Antivirus – works on Windows Server 2016 and 2019, which has Windows Defender installed by default.
  4. Updated Test-IsServerCore to check the registry instead of using Get-WindowsFeature. Much faster. Thanks to @mderooij for the example. (Yes, I do look at other people’s scripts for ideas and inspiration!)
  5. Fixed an issue where attempting to do things for Skype for Business Server 2019 on Windows Server 2016 would throw the .NET error. .NET 4.7.2 is supported on both.
  6. Cleaned up the code that creates the file share (option 50-25). Mainly some more error catching for fringe scenarios.
  7. When building a standard edition front end (option 3), you’ll now be asked if you want to create the file store share.
  8. Cleaned up the code that calls for the installation of the online admin tools. It’s all in the Install-CsOnlineAdminTools function, and called from various places.
  9. Fixed a typo for option 6 (Persistent Chat server) that would throw an error when attempting to install the telnet client.
  10. Fixed a typo for option 1 (Director) that would throw an error when installing a SfB 2019 Director on Windows Server 2019.
  11. Tweaked the function that detects if a restart is needed. It now checks more flags, although the additional ones aren’t triggered by the script.
  12. Noticed that the installer of the Skype Online PowerShell module running during option 7 (SCOM Watcher Node) would sometimes reboot the server. That wasn’t expected (although it was a clean restart). Tweaked the code to help avoid the reboot until it’s done with all of the prereqs, and then to do it with a prompt. I tweaked the Install-CsOnlineAdminTools function accordingly, even though I don’t recall it ever restarting unexpectedly when Skype Online PowerShell module is installed via that function.

v5.0 – 09-17-2018

  1. Added more bugs to fix later. πŸ™‚
  2. Code around handling of Windows Server 2019. This is for support for Skype for Business 2019 on Windows Server 2019 (which currently isn’t supported, but will be). If you’re in the TAP or Elite100, this script works for your testing. As far as testing goes, all known issues have been resolved as of this publication date. There is a known issue where rebooting a Windows Server 2019 server sometimes results in the network card showing as ‘no Internet access’. That’s a Windows issue, not a script issue. I’m tracking that, and the script does check for Internet access before trying to perform tasks that require it to connect to something on the Internet (such as file downloads).
  3. Looks like the old Skype for Business Server 2015 hotfix for Windows Server 2012 R2 was replaced by a server update, 3013769. I updated the code to install that file instead. It should be noted that this update is generally already installed on a currently patched Windows Server 2012 R2 server, but I haven’t found a valid way to test if it’s installed yet (my normal method didn’t work). So we try to install it again, and let it gracefully stop if it’s already installed. No harm, really. If I find a better way, I’ll update things.
  4. New-ProgramInstallation function updated to v1.5 – tweaks mainly around logging more info.
  5. New-FileDownload function updated to v1.6 – tweaks mainly around efficiency if a file doesn’t need to be downloaded (because it already exists locally).
  6. Code cleanup: Reduced the number of nested loops to make code easier to follow and more efficient.
  7. Lots more validation for some options to ensure that Lync options aren’t installed on Skype for Business servers, Skype for Business Server 2015 options aren’t installed on Skype for Business Server 2019 servers, etc.
  8. Fixed the Disable RC4 Cipher option for Windows Server 2012.
  9. If the Windows source path is not valid, the script will now pop up a browse box to allow you to navigate to the proper location instead of just stopping with an error. Thanks to Brian (@bricomp) for the suggestion.
  10. Script now bypasses more system checks for -DownloadOnly. The true purpose of -DownloadOnly and -DownloadAll are so that you can download the necessary files on an Internet connected machine, regardless of OS, and transfer them to non-Internet connected servers for installation.
  11. Some cleanup of the code for Office Online Server (option 5).
  12. Added May 2018 CU for Office Online Server.
  13. Added the same OWAS CU to be included when using -DownloadOnly. Not sure why I hadn’t done that previously.
  14. A TON of tweaks to the logging, mainly to make it easier to find things quickly.
  15. Added -DisableWac option to disable the Windows Admin Center prompt seen when Server Manager is launched in Windows Server 2019. It’s also added as option 50-26. as well as visually prompted when installing prereqs for any Skype for Business Server 2019 role on Windows Server 2019.

v4.9 – 08-31-2018

  1. Added more bugs to fix later. πŸ™‚
  2. Additional code around Skype for Business Server 2019 was added
  3. Cleanup of some old, unused stuff that was commented out
  4. Optimization of the Stop-Script function for better error handling
  5. Current power plan now logged per request
  6. Fixed a couple of typos in the help documentation – Thanks to Greig
  7. Updated Get-UpdateInfo to v1.6. Some streamlined code since the security protocol automatically resets upon closing the session, I removed the code that reset it within the function. Thanks to @realtimeuc for pointing it out.
  8. Some code around installing the latest supported version of .NET (currently 4.7.1). This also allowed for another menu item, 20-10, to install/update .NET to the latest supported version.
  9. Tweaked Write-Log to v3.3 per Greig’s OCD as well as some minor tweaks. This function will probably be posted to github soon.
  10. updated 50-19, option to block .NET, to v4.7.2
  11. Upgraded SQL Server Management Studio to 17.8.1 (14.0.17277.0)
  12. Fixed Mediation Server (option 4) to properly check for, and use, the Windows source files. Thanks to Seth and Linus for reporting the issue.

Known issues

  1. There is currently no support for Windows Server 2019. I’ll begin working on that soon.

v4.8 – 03-10-2018

  1. Added more bugs to fix later. πŸ™‚
  2. Some code around vNext was added
  3. Network Assessment Tool updated to v1.1.0.0

v4.7 – 02-23-2018

  1. Added more bugs to fix later. πŸ™‚
  2. Added January update for Office Online Server (option 5)
  3. Fixed a minor logging issue around the Office Online Server cumulative update.
  4. Updated SQL Server Management Studio to 17.5 (14.0.17224.0)
  5. Minor logging tweaks
  6. Minor error trapping when the OS is 2008 R2 and before the script exits with the invalid OS message.

Known Issues

  1. When using the -Tail option, I’ve noticed that every once in a while, the tail window will throw a quick error when starting, and close. I haven’t been able to capture the error, or the cause. The script itself seems to run fine, and all logging activity continues. The tail window just closes.

v4.6 – 01-19-2018

  1. Added more bugs to fix later. πŸ™‚
  2. Updated Get-VersionInfo to 1.5, which includes some work around dealing with TLS 1.2 (only) sites for downloading the update XML file. I suspect that this, or something similar, will get worked into the New-FileDownload code that downloads files for the rest of the script as well. Thanks to @GreigInSydney (of course).
  3. Updated Office Online Server to use the November 2017 ISO, which also negates the need for the July 2017 update and its related code.
  4. .NET framework build number that is logged now also includes the version number. Format is ‘build (version)’. i.e. ‘394802 (4.6.2)’. Thanks to @GreigInSydney
  5. Added NET-Framework-45-Features, NET-Framework-45-Core to the installed Windows features for installing Office Online Server on Windows Server 2016 as per the updated guidelines on
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeonlineserver/deploy-office-online-server
  6. Added Microsoft Identity Model Extensions to the installed features installing for Office Online Server as per the updated guidelines on
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeonlineserver/deploy-office-online-server
  7. Updated English Language Pack for Office Online Server (option 5) to November 2017 version – v16.0.8431.1018
  8. WireShark updated to v2.2.12

Known Issues

  1. When using the -Tail option, I’ve noticed that every once in a while, the tail window will throw a quick error when starting, and close. I haven’t been able to capture the error, or the cause. The script itself seems to run fine, and all logging activity continues. The tail window just closes.

v4.5 – 12-21-2017

  1. Added more bugs to fix later. πŸ™‚
  2. Updated Debugging Tools to v6.0.
  3. Option 50-14 tweaked. Now the script checks to see if a component is installed before trying to install it. (I know, what a concept, right?)
  4. Reworked the Get-UpdateInfo function so that it properly shows the changelog info in the popup box. Also increased performance, as well as downloading the update file directly when available, and showing the article when the update file isn’t available. Thanks to Greig (@GreigInSydney) for the bug submission and code sample.
  5. Moved option 9 (Create SMB share) to the Misc Server Config menu (option 50).
  6. Moved options 10 through 17 (resource kits, SQL Mgmt Studio, etc.) to a new Microsoft Tools and Apps menu (option 20).
  7. A little bit of code optimization.
  8. Option 3 (Front End) updated to prompt for installation of online (Office 365) admin components.
  9. Added -IncludeOnlineAdminTools switch. If specified when calling the script, tells the script to automatically include the Skype for Business Online admin tools when installing prerequisites for front-end servers.
  10. Tweaks to some of the Visual C++ detection code and error messages. Thanks to James (@atreidae) for the bug submission.
  11. Network Assessment Tool download (option 80-8) updated to 2017.1.0.51.
  12. Lifted the blocker for .NET 4.7, since it’s now supported. See https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn951388.aspx. Updated related menus and logging appropriately. Blocker for 4.7.1 and later are still in place. Note that this applies to the Skype for Business related roles only. No change has been made for the OOS role, since that’s technically a SharePoint role. I’ve yet to find any new info for that.
  13. Added option 20-9 (Network Assessment Tool)
  14. Fixed a rare issue where if a server had to reboot a second time while prereqs were being installed for a specific role, the script would work the first reboot, but on the second reboot, it would stop at the menu instead of picking up where it should.
  15. MS Teams module (50-24) now gracefully exits if the script is running on an unsupported version of PowerShell. The cmdlets required to install it require PowerShell v5.1 or later.
  16. Added the -SkipAutoStart option. This is really a fringe case option that was requested. It’s designed to keep the script from restarting after a required reboot (in cases where it normally would). The use is really in cases where you have to do something before the script starts again, like mounting an ISO that the script is going to need. When used, you’ll need to manually start the script again once you’re ready.
  17. Resolved a minor issue where the script will ask if a Front End is a standard edition server, and then, following the reboot, will ask again.

Known Issues

  1. When using the -Tail option, I’ve noticed that every once in a while, the tail window will throw a quick error when starting, and close. I haven’t been able to capture the error, or the cause. The script itself seems to run fine, and all logging activity continues. The tail window just closes.

v4.40 – 11-12-2017

  1. Added more bugs to fix later. πŸ™‚
  2. Bypass of the 32/64 bit PowerShell process check when using -DownloadOnly or -DownloadAll
  3. Updated Silverlight to v5.1.50907.0
  4. Updated WireShark to v2.2.10
  5. Added 80-17 – Skype for Business Basic Client (32 and 64 bit) v16.0.4417.1000 and Lync Basic Client (32 and 64 bit) v15.0.4420.1017 [DOWNLOAD ONLY]
  6. Added 80-18 – Skype Room System Administrative Web Portal v1525.1 [DOWNLOAD ONLY]
  7. Added 80-19 – Key Health Indicators for Lync Server 2013 and Skype for Business Server 2015 v2.0 [DOWNLOAD ONLY]
  8. Fixed an issue with option 9 (Create a file share) to deal with the user selecting a root drive instead of an existing or new subfolder. If a root drive is selected, a folder called SkypeShare (or LyncShare if running in Lync mode) is created and it is shared. Thanks to @JDubyaeber for reporting the issue.
  9. Option 50-19 updated to also block .NET v4.7.1 (in addition to v4.7). MS hasn’t released guidance into how to block v4.7.1 yet, but this apparently works to block this version for Windows Updates. I can verify this method does NOT block manual installation. Both versions are still unsupported for Skype for Business Server 2015.
  10. Option 50-5 (Set recovery of SfB/Lync/OOS services to restart) updated to also include the SfB Statistics Manager (“statsman”) agent service.
  11. Added warning to 50-23 (Enable Enhanced Experience for Meetings Hosted on Skype for Business On-premises) to rerun option if more front end servers are deployed in the environment.
  12. Added option 50-24 – MS Teams PowerShell module.

v4.30 – 10-11-2017

  1. Added a prompt if more than 1 NIC is detected in servers other than Edge.
  2. Fixed check for edge domain name before forcing it to be changed (like when script is run a second time after the domain name is set).
  3. Changed from using netdom.exe for some of the edge config changes to directly making the changes in the registry.
  4. Set ‘Set recovery of SfB/Lync/OOS services to restart’ (Option 50/5) to only set the first two failures to restart, and leave the subsequent failures to ‘take no action’. This should prevent issues where problematic services get stuck in a perpetual restarting loop.
  5. Added some code to detect if FIPS is enabled. This is based on some feedback around issues that arise when FIPS is enabled and you try to install some of the prereqs. More will be added later. Thanks to Sean for bringing it up.
  6. Added option 80-14 – Call Quality Dashboard [DOWNLOAD ONLY].
  7. Added option 80-15 – Real-Time Statistics Manager (StatsMan) [DOWNLOAD ONLY].
  8. Added option 90-10 – Configure longer Diffie-Hellman ephemeral (DHE) key shares for TLS servers. This option sets it to 2048 (from the default 1024). See https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/3174644.aspx for more info. This should help get higher scores at sites such as https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest. Thanks to @greiginsydney & Mike S. for the info.
  9. Added option 90-11 – Disable PCT 1.0.
  10. Added option 90-12 – Disable other weak ciphers – includes NULL, DES 56/56 and RC2. Tons more security options coming soon.
  11. Updated option 50-11 – Edit hosts file – to ensure it opens notepad elevated.
  12. Fixed option 15 – Lync Connectivity Analyzer – MS has killed the download page for it. I fixed it so it grabs from an alternate source, and removed the restriction that the option only work when the script is in ‘Lync’ mode.
  13. Added option 80-16 – IIS Crypto [DOWNLOAD ONLY].
  14. Bypass the virtualization function code when the script is called with either the -downloadall or -downloadonly options. This is because that code can cause exception errors when run on a Win 10 machine. I’ll make this a little more graceful in the future. Thanks to @JDubyaeber for the heads up.
  15. Re-added the admin/elevated check when -downloadall or -downloadonly options are used. This is because some of the logging code needs elevated access to right to the registry, such as when the script starts/finishes.

v4.20 – 09-04-2017

  1. Minor corrections to the edge NIC configuration code. Thanks to @JapNolt for pointing it out and supplying a solution for one of the issues.
  2. Now log the number of NICs that are enabled. This will be used in the future to throw some alerts, if needed.
  3. Added NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45 to the list of Windows Features installed for OOS (option 5).
  4. Added detection for Visual C++ 2013 when using OOS (option 5). If it’s not detected, it will install it. This resolves an issue where OOS servers could show ‘unhealthy’.
  5. Updated WireShark to 2.2.9.
  6. Added ‘Enable Enhanced Experience for Meetings Hosted on Skype for Business On-premises‘ (50-23).
  7. Fixed some minor error message text that mentioned ‘Lync Server’ instead of ‘Skype for Business Server’.
  8. Tweaked the code for ‘Add Trusted Root Certification Authorities to Edge Servers’ (50-22) to deal with that option being selected before the initial IE configuration prompts are dealt with. Also added some more certification authorities.
  9. Added detection code and related error to determine if the script is running in an x86 PowerShell session – Thanks to Brennan.
  10. Fixed a minor logging issue when using options in the ‘Third Party’ menu.
  11. Fixed an issue where the WireShark installer macro would try to run even if the WireShark exe file failed to download.
  12. Fixed an issue where the script would exit to allow downloading a new version, but wouldn’t clear the ‘running’ flag. Thanks to @greiginsydney for noticing.
  13. Fixed an issue where the script would throw an unintended error if the rtclocal SQL instance failed, and the script tried to apply the firewall exceptions for the Get-CsConnections script. Thanks to @greiginsydney for the heads up.
  14. Fixed an issue where the pick list for internal edge NICs was sometimes blank. Thanks to Korbyn for pointing it out.
  15. Fixed a minor logging issue when removing the Windows Store App from the taskbar (50-12).
  16. Updated option to temporarily block the installation of .NET (option 50-19) to block version 4.7 (from 4.62) as 4.7 is not supported for Skype for Business Server (yet). Script will also stop if 4.7 is installed.
  17. Added -DisableAutoUpdates switch to bypass the prompt about disabling auto windows updates when installing roles. When specified for any role (1-6), automatic updates are disabled, and not prompt is displayed. When not specified, a prompt will be displayed.
  18. Added -IncludeLanguagePack switch to bypass the prompt about installing the english language pack when building OOS servers (option 5).
  19. Included the June, 2017 security update for OOS servers (option 5).
  20. Added -SkipEdgeNicConfig option to skip the NIC config when building edge servers (option 2). If you use this option, understand that you must manually configure those components on the server. Thanks to @greiginsydney for the suggestion.
  21. Disabling SSL3 (option 90-2) now disables both the server and client components.
  22. Disabling SSL2 (option 90-1) now disables both the server and client components.
  23. Added security option 90-7 – Set LmCompatibilityLevel to 5 (NTLMv2 only). See https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc960646.aspx for more info. Also, the LmCompatibilityLevel when the script is started is also logged.
  24. Added security option 90-8 – Disable Link-Local Multicast Name Resolution (LLMNR).
  25. Re-engineered some of the code around how the script reboots and restarts. This was due to some limitations in the RunOnce registry key in Windows.
  26. Fixed the problem with the latest Skype for Business Debugging Tools (option 12). It now requires Visual C++ 2015, whereas the previous builds required Visual C++ 2013, so the script was updated to install that if needed.
  27. Some minor updates to what gets logged at the beginning of the log file.
  28. Added support for Windows Server 2016.
  29. Fixed an issue where the script would throw an error when restarting after a reboot if a menu option hadn’t been selected initially.
  30. Fixed URL for Skype Adoption Portal.

Known issues

  1. Looks like pinning of shortcuts to the taskbar & desktop are not working in Windows Server 2016.

v4.10 – 05-15-2017

  1. Write-Log function upgraded to v3.1
  2. fixed logic in 90-6 (disable SMBv1)

v4.09 – 05-13-2017

  1. Minor menu cleanup
  2. Added a reboot check after Wireshark is installed, and before the config macro runs. Two people have reported spontaneous server reboots at that point. It’s not the script – it’s WireShark.
  3. Upgraded SQL Server Management Studio to v17.
  4. fixed a couple of typos – thanks to @greiginsydney for pointing them out.
  5. fixed an issue with disabling NetBIOS over TCP/IP
  6. option 50-22 (Add Trusted Root Certification Authorities to Edge Servers) added. See https://www.ucunleashed.com/3029 for more info.
  7. Minor adjustments to basic function code

v4.08 – 04-19-2017

  1. Added Lync Edge Server Replication failed FALSE with red cross (option 90-5)
  2. added Disable SMBv1 (option 90-6). See https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-010.aspx for more info.
  3. Fixed issue with Windows Source files when installing prereqs for Persistent Chat servers. Thanks to Steve for sending me the bug report.

v4.07 – 04-14-2017

  1. added Meeting Migration Tool (option 80-11) to the download menu. This option downloads both the 32 and 64 bit versions. Because both versions have the same file name, they are downloaded to individual sub folders.
  2. added Cloud Center Edition v1.4.2 (option 80-12) to the download menu
  3. Substantial code optimization utilizing PsScriptAnalyzer and PsSharper (literally like 2000 lines of code tweaked)
  4. removed Test-ScriptUpdate function since it was replaced with the newer update method
  5. updated Test-InvalidCert function to v1.3 (adds checking of Intermediate Store & moves certs in the incorrect store to the correct store). Note that this function runs automatically when the script is started. Results are written to the log file.
  6. updated Write-Log function to v3.0 (adds a verbose level)
  7. fixed a typo in the virtualization detection code (how did I miss THAT?)
  8. Updated download URL for network assessment download
  9. removed download URL for RASK Resources file, as it seems to no longer be available for download
  10. updated .NET check to only throw an error if the detected version is > v4.6.2, since v4.6.2 is now supported (assuming CU 4)
  11. Updated Wireshark (option 30-1) to v2.2.6
  12. Updated Windows Features required for Director role. Thanks to @greiginsydney for pointing it out.
  13. added Windows Features for Skype for Business 2015 stand-alone Mediation server. Thanks to @greiginsydney for the info.

v4.06 – 02-05-2017

  1. Added some additional code for OOS (option 5) to deal with (& log) potential issue where OOS ISO image isn’t mounted, or takes a while to mount.
  2. Added option 80-10: Skype for Business Adoption Portal [DOWNLOAD ONLY]
  3. Re-enabled the static route section of the edge server config (option 2). I forgot this was disabled. This has always been a real pain to deal with. This is because sometimes, when you programmatically remove the gateway on the internal NIC and reboot the machine, Windows will clear ALL of the config for that NIC. This usually means that when the machine is back up and running, you can’t connect to it. I have yet to find a rhyme or reason as to what causes this. If you can’t RDP to the edge server once it reboots, check the internal NIC config.
  4. Added option 90-4 to disable the RC4 Ciper. See https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2868725 and https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/245030 for more info.
  5. Updated option 5 (OOS) to November 2016 build
  6. Added option 70-13 – WireShark taskbar shortcut
  7. Fixed an issue with 50-19 (Block install of .NET 4.6.1) that would thow an error when checking for specific registry values
  8. Updated option 6 (Persistent Chat) for Skype for Business Server 2015
  9. Fixed an issue in option 6 (Persistent Chat) where if a reboot was required, and the user chose to reboot, the server wouldn’t reboot automatically.
  10. Updated option 30-1 (WireShark) to prompt if you want a taskbar shortcut created for WireShark.
  11. Updated option 50-18 (Skype federation) to ensure that the provider config is enabled if it already exists.
  12. Minor tweaking to Write-Log (logging function)
  13. Minor tweak to detection of last boot time
  14. Updated option 30-1 (WireShark) to v2.2.4
  15. Updated Get-UpdateInfo function to v1.2
  16. Updated 50-14 (Install Skype for Business Online Admin components) to include all requirements for management of Skype for Business in O365, including “Microsoft Online Services Sign-in Assistant”, “Windows Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell”, and “Skype for Business Online, Windows PowerShell Module”
  17. Updated 80-6 (Download Skype for Business Online Admin components) to include all requirements for management of Skype for Business in O365, including “Microsoft Online Services Sign-in Assistant”, “Windows Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell”, and “Skype for Business Online, Windows PowerShell Module”

v4.05 – 11-04-2016

  1. Updated GUID for Message Analyzer as MS rolled out a new version (4.0.8112.0), and the script was hanging looking for the old GUID.
  2. Fixed an issue where the SMB file share would get the wrong share name when not specifying -skype4b option, and choosing “yes” on the prompt.

v4.04 – 11-02-2016

  1. Fixed some URL references that still pointed to the old version of the script & its related downloads. No functionality changes as a result of this. More of just a housekeeping issue. Added a variable that will eliminate this issue going forward.
  2. Fixed an issue where a file download fails (for any reason), and the retry fails because the filename has a space in it. Stupid missing quotes….
  3. Fixed an issue where the SQL Express code wouldn’t run when using -skype4b and selecting options 1, 2, 4, or 6.
  4. Updated .NET warning to include a link to Jeff Guillet’s article on removing .NET framework 4.6.1
  5. Updated SQL Express 2014 and SQL Server Management Studio to SP2 (from RTM). Dunno why I didn’t see that earlier. – Thanks to @pilzi for pointing it out to me.
  6. The usual code optimization as I find better, faster, more efficient/consistent ways of doing things.
  7. Preliminary work around supporting Windows Server 2016 – NOTE: Lync Server 2013 and Skype for Business Server 2015 are NOT supported on Windows Server 2016. Yet.

v4.03 – 11-01-2016

  1. Fixed issue with option 60-6 in Skype4b mode not recognizing resource kit installed (it was looking for the old executable name)
  2. Changed -Win2012Source parameter to -WindowsSource (in anticipation of Windows 2016 support for Skype for Business Server 2015)
  3. Created option 30 – Third Party Tools menu, and moved WireShark and Customized PortQryUI to it
  4. Code optimization
  5. Moved option 24 (UCMA) to the Misc Server Config menu (50)
  6. Moved option 16 (Windows Update) to the Misc Server Config menu (50)
  7. fixed URLs in comment help for the script (they were still pointing at the old version)
  8. added the SQL Express and SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) code for -Skype4B. Selecting appropriate options will now install the SQL Express 2014 instances and/or SSMS. -SQLPath works as intended, as well.
