How can we improve KACE Desktop Authority?

Update documentation and examples

Much of the documentation and examples for things like Dynamic Variables are really outdated. For example, here is the documentation and examples given for a couple variables:

Operating System type:
95 - Windows 95
98 - Windows 98
NT - All versions of NT/2000

$ProfileDirAU **This one isn't in the documentation
Full path of the "All Users" profile
"C:\WinNT\Profiles\All Users"
"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users"

Consider that there is a generation of support personnel that didn't use computers with the above operation systems or folder paths. I have to stop and thing about it for a second for some of the variables to make sure I'm using the correct one for Windows 10. Some variables, I can't even tell if they are available such as one for ProgramData.
