New version of the MDT Wizard Editor is available

For those of you who customize the MDT wizards, you may want to check out the new version of the MDT Wizard Editor at  The latest version 2.0, uploaded today, includes a few fixes (e.g. properly encoding XML file entries in CDATA sections), adds support for MDT 2010, and includes a few new features.

The first change you will notice is that there is now a menu bar:



Use the “File” menu to open menu definition files (XML files), save your changes, and to exit the program.  Use the “Wizard” menu to test a wizard definition file after you have made changes.

The testing process is the most significant change in this new version.  It will gather information from the machine (running ZTIGather, as long as it can find it) and then display all of the variable values before starting the wizard:


You can modify variables, remove variables, add variables – whatever you would like to do.  When you are ready to run the wizard, click the “Run” button.  Once you have completed the wizard, the dialog will be updated to show you the variables that were set after the wizard completed:


In this case, you can see the additional variables that were defined for keyboards, applications, BitLocker, etc.

If you find any issues with this release, or if you have any suggestions on how to improve the release (subject to my available time), please use the CodePlex “Issue Tracker” to submit new items.
