I see that this script is meant to be used for only specific uses vsphere, exchange, vcenter audit... Why not make this more generic
And let the plugins fetch results from: exchange, vsphere, ADS, SQL, and such?

This is definitely on the to do list, but requires quite a bit of work to do properly. Technically this is possible now, if you structure your plugins folder appropriately.

Exactly, it works at the moment but what would you want to see @Proxx ? an initial selection of which product to check?

The HTML framework was adapted along time ago to basically make it easy to report on any PowerShell script that creates an output
Personally I would like to see the GUI config completed as in this case it would be so much easier to configure, especially as the plugins are now getting more and more.
BTW, there is a video at the end of this post here which shows me making a random vCheck for something simple in PowerShell using the framework... http://www.virtu-al.net/vcheck-pluginsheaders/vcheck/

Yeah, the config GUI and changes to the settings (to facilitate easier updates) would be definitely the top of the list. This is more of a nice to have, and could trim down the execution time and resource usage by only fetching information that is required by plugins.
