Use the General tab of the Configuration Manager 2007 Script Setting Properties dialog box to define your own name and description of this setting and to define the script that will be used to assess compliance on client computers.

The value returned by the script is used to assess compliance on client computers. For example, when using VBScript, you could use the command WScript.Echo Result to return the Result variable value to desired configuration management. You can then use a validation rule to specify the compliance of this value. For more information, see About Desired Configuration Management Extensibility in the Configuration Manager 2007 SDK.

This tab contains the following elements:
