Shared Configuration

The BIS-F Shared Configuration can be used if the BIS-F ADMX can not deployed, this can have the following reasons:

  • Citrix AppLayering: Domain Mode is in Platform Layer available only
  • Computer running in Workgroup Mode
  • Microsoft Azure: No GPO’s can be deployed
  • SCCM Tasksequence Deploymnent: During TS Deployment GPO’s not processed, read very good Blog from my CTA colleague Dennis Span here
  • New GPO’s / ADMX can not be easily integrated in your enterprise environment

Install BIS-F on your Admin Workstation and copy the ADMX as describes here to your local Admin Workstation C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions, after it run > cmd > as administrator > gpedit.mscto open up the local policy and configure BIS-F on your requirements.
All settings are written to the local registry “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\LoginConsultants\BISF
Configure also the BIS-F Shared Configuration, you can use a local path, e.g. “C:\Program Files (x86)\Base Image Script Framework (BIS-F)” to save the registry export there.


Open the Powershell as administrator and point it to the BIS-F Folder
> cd “C:\Program Files (x86)\Base Image Script Framework (BIS-F)\Framework”
> .PrepBISF_Start.ps1 -ExportSharedConfiguration


All the BIS-F registry Settings are exported to the XML File, in the Path that you have entered in the Shared Configuration above

The Export creates 2 XML Files:

  • BISFSharedConfig.xml: Store the Path to the BISFconfig_…xml, where BIS-F can find the XML Config
  • BISFconfig_…xml:Store all the BIS-F Settings, there are imported if you run BIS-F during preparation andpersonalization

Note:You can also store the BISFconfig on a UNC-Path on the network, but if your computer is not in the Domain, everybody must have read access to this path.
