Daily Blog #377: Sunday Funday 4/17/16

Hello Reader,
              If  you have been following the blow the last two weeks you would have seen its been all about dfVFS. Phil aka Random Access posted something I was thinking about on his blog, https://thisweekin4n6.wordpress.com, that I thought was worthy of a Sunday Funday challenge. In short Phil saw that I posted a video regarding how to verify dfVFS was installed correctly and there is a whole post just on installing it and mentioned that someone should automate this process. I agree Phil, and now I turn it over to you Reader, let's try out your scripting skills in this weeks Sunday Funday Challenge.

The Challenge:
Read the following blogpost: http://www.hecfblog.com/2015/12/how-to-install-dfvfs-on-windows-without.html and then write a script in your choice of scripting language that will pull down and install those packages for a user. Second the script should then run the dfVFS testing script shown in this video http://www.hecfblog.com/2016/04/daily-blog-375-video-blog-showing-how.html to validate the install.
