Hi folks.

before starting my question, I'd like to say thank you to the PatchMyPC team for the great work and constant improvements you have built into the product. It's an outstanding product that fills a huge gap at a more than resaonable price. 

I am currently evaluating Patch My PC with one of our customers and they quicly fell in love with the pre/post script feature that allows to customize the behavior of setups both for Patches and also applications.

We currently have a lot of Powershell scripts for our application setups, to customize lots of stuff. These Powershell scripts use some Powershell modules, external XML files and many are based on the well known Powershell App Deployment Toolkit that requires a certain file structure in the script directory in order to work.

With PatchMyPC we are planning to entirely skip application packaging for all the products in the PatchMyPC catalog and move our current scripting logic completely to the pre/post script feature of PatchMyPC.

My question is: Is the Pre/post scripting feature of PatchMyPC capable of running more complex scripts that rely on external files or Powershell modules that reside in the script directory? Can we simply copy an existing script along with its modules and maybe subfolders and everything is run by PatchMyPC?

I have not been able to test it out myself yet. Hopefully someone here could provide an answer if this if possible or (if not) is planned to be included soon!

Thank you very much in advance
