Hi Parthi,

Seems you want to Import Security Settings from .INF file, For that you have to create GPO file from inf file ( Take backup before that), below single line will do the needful

import-gpo -BackupId GUID -TargetName "Default Domain Policy" -path $ImportGPOPath

Create shell script by referring this script & change it to call your GPO file & don't forget it map it to unattended resource directory

Refer below wall paper unattended answer for reference,

Thanks, I was actually using the local security setting so was able to achieve this using secedit.exe cmdline.

You have an example of applying a GPO in the repo:

We are using it to set the wallpaper.
