If you have associated your AWS account with your ScaleFT project, you can omit the first half of the script which is responsible for writing the enrollment token.

<powershell>
# Write the Enrollment Token
$enrollment_token = "ENROLLMENT TOKEN GOES HERE"
$enrollment_token_path = "C:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\ScaleFT\enrollment.token"
New-Item -ItemType directory -Path (Split-Path $enrollment_token_path -Parent)
$enrollment_token | Out-File $enrollment_token_path -Encoding "ASCII"

# Install ScaleFT Server Tools
$installer_url = "https://dist.scaleft.com/server-tools/windows/latest/ScaleFT-Server-Tools-latest.msi"
$installer_path = [System.IO.Path]::ChangeExtension([System.IO.Path]::GetTempFileName(), ".msi")
(New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile($installer_url, $installer_path)
msiexec.exe /qb /I $installer_path
</powershell>
