Windows Classes

class { 'windows::autologon':
  user     => 'justin',
  password => 's3kr1t',
}

windows::iis_express

Downloads and installs IIS Express 8.

windows::java

Automatically downloads and installs Java from Oracle. Currently, it uses Java 8 Update 60. Use of this class implies your acceptance of the Oracle Binary Code License Agreement for SE Platform Products.

windows::nssm

windows::power_scheme

Sets the power scheme for the system, for example:

class { 'windows::power_scheme':
  ensure => 'High performance',
}

windows::refresh_environment

Windows Defined Types

windows::environment

Configures a windows environment variable, for example:

windows::environment { 'PYTHONPATH':
  value => 'C:\my_python_path'
}

windows::firewall_rule

Creates a Windows firewall rule, for a program or a local port. Some examples:

# Allow ICMP ping.
windows::firewall_rule { 'ICMP Ping':
  protocol => 'icmpv4:8,any',
}

# Allow Python 2.7.
windows::firewall_rule { 'python2.7':
  program => 'C:\Python27\python.exe',
}

windows::path

Ensures that the given directory is a part of the Windows %Path%, e.g.:

windows::path { 'C:\Python27': }

windows::regsvr32

Registers a DLL (or other control) specificed by the resource's name as a component in the registry.

windows::screen_saver

Configures a screen saver (specified by the given user name). For example, this configures the blank screen saver for the user justin to engage after 10 minutes, and requiring a password to log back in:

windows::screen_saver { 'justin':
  secure  => true,
  timeout => '10m',
}

windows::shortcut

Configures a windows shortcut, for example:

windows::shortcut { 'C:\Users\justin\Desktop\python.lnk':
  target      => 'C:\Python27\python.exe',
  description => 'Python 2.7',
}

windows::unzip

Unzips a file on Windows using Microsoft native APIs. For example:

windows::unzip { 'C:\compressed.zip':
  destination => 'C:\dest',
  creates     => 'C:\dest\uncompressed.txt',
}

This assumes that the file uncompressed.txt exists in C:\compressed.zip
