Many system developers complain about repetitive settings of their testing Windows workstations to make them usable for testing software. Number of dialogs you need to go through is bigger on Windows Vista or newer, where the necessary dialogs are often hidden one level deeper than in Windows XP. BellaVista is a tool that gathers necessary settings to one place, speeding configuration up.

To install BellaVista, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install bellavista

To upgrade BellaVista, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade bellavista
