I ran through the Windows install directions a couple months ago and
they were good. [1]

All of the basic resources I used like execute, cookbook_file,
template, service and remote_file worked. I have an Active Directory
cookbook on the the cookbook site [2] that should provide an example
of this. There isn’t a registry resource, but you could still
manipulate it through the execute resource.

That’s brilliant to hear - ISTR reading something recently that /didn’t/
mention working Templates on Windows (in an otherwise comprehensive looking
list) which really didn’t sound great for me. Any “interesting” gotchas?
