Copying or migrating users between groups

A common task when implementing new systems is to copy or migrate users from one AD group to another. It’s often a requirement when deploying upgraded application versions too. I wrote a small utility that makes this task easier. Being GUI based means it can be used by less technical team members as well.

The PowerShell code for this utility is below.

#region ScriptForm Designer

#region Constructor

[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms")
[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Drawing")
