WOxCompliant Update

Chris Bell has an updated version of his WOxCompliant:

What changed?

  1. I fixed an issue that would cause a continual loop to occur and hang the script indefinitely. With this fix, my tests are returning results in just seconds now!

  2. Corrected various typos and details in the results

  3. If you had xp_Cmdshell active before the script, it used to turn it off at the end for compliance. Now the script checks and leaves it active if you had it active. It will still notify you of the results though

This is one of my favorite third-party scripts for configuring a database.
