+# AuthInitialize Example
+This example shows how to create and register a custom `AuthIntialize` authentication
+handler on the client that authenticates against a server that was started with the corresponding authenticator. 
+
+## Prerequisites
+* Install [Apache Geode](https://geode.apache.org)
+* Build and install [Apache Geode Native](https://github.com/apache/geode-native)
+* Apache Geode Native examples, built and installed
+* Set `GEODE_HOME` to the install directory of Apache Geode
+
+## Running
+1. From a command shell, set the current directory to the `authinitialize` directory in your example workspace.
+
+    ```console
+    $ cd workspace/examples/cpp/authinitialize
+    ```
+
+2. Run the `startserver` script to start the Geode cluster with authentication and create a region.
+
+   For Windows cmd:
+
+    ```console
+    $ powershell.exe -File startserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Windows Powershell:
+
+    ```console
+    $ startserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Bash:
+
+    ```console
+    $ ./startserver.sh
+    ```
+
+3. Execute `authinitialize`, expect the following output:
+
+    ```text
+    ExampleAuthInitialize::ExampleAuthInitialize called
+    ExampleAuthInitialize::getCredentials called
+    a = 1
+    b = 2
+    ```
+
+4. Run the `stopserver` script to gracefully shutdown the Geode cluster.
+
+   For Windows cmd:
+
+    ```console
+    $ powershell.exe -File stopserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Windows Powershell:
+
+    ```console
+    $ stopserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Bash:
+
+    ```console
+    $ ./stopserver.sh
+    ```

 ## Running
-1. Set the current directory to the `continuousquery` directory in your installed example workspace.
-
-  ```
-  $ cd workspace/examples/cpp/continuousquery
-  ```
-
-1. Run the `startserver.sh` script to start the Geode locator, server, and create a region.
-
-  ```

-  /Users/user/geode/bin/gfsh
-
-  (1) Executing - start locator --name=locator
-  ...
-  (2) Executing - start server --name=server
-  ...
-  (3) Executing - create region --name=custom_orders --type=PARTITION
-
-  Member | Status
-  ------ | -------------------------------------------
-  server | Region "/custom_orders" created on "server"
-  ```
-
-1. Execute `continuousquery`:
-
-  ```
-  $ ./continuousquery
-  Executing continuous query
-  Create orders
-  Putting and changing Order objects in the region
-  MyCqListener::OnEvent called with CREATE, key[Order2], value(2, product y, 37)
-  MyCqListener::OnEvent called with CREATE, key[Order4], value(4, product z, 102)
-  MyCqListener::OnEvent called with CREATE, key[Order6], value(6, product z, 42)
-  MyCqListener::OnEvent called with UPDATE, key[Order2], value(2, product y, 45)
-  MyCqListener::OnEvent called with DESTROY, key[Order2], value(2, product y, 29)
-  MyCqListener::OnEvent called with DESTROY, key[Order6], value is nullptr
-  close called
-  ```
-
-1. Stop the server
-
-  ```
-  $ sh ./stopserver.sh
-  /Users/user/geode/bin/gfsh

-  ....
-  ```
+1. From a command shell, set the current directory to the `continuousquery` directory in your example workspace.
+
+    ```console
+    $ cd workspace/examples/cpp/continuousquery
+    ```
+
+2. Run the `startserver` script to start the Geode cluster with authentication and create a region.
+
+   For Windows cmd:
+
+   ```console
+   $ powershell.exe -File startserver.ps1
+   ```
+
+   For Windows Powershell:
+
+    ```console
+   $ startserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Bash:
+
+    ```console
+    $ ./startserver.sh
+    ```
+
+3. Execute `continuousquery`, expect the following output:
+
+       Executing continuous query
+       Create orders
+       Putting and changing Order objects in the region
+       MyCqListener::OnEvent called with CREATE, key[Order2], value(2, product y, 37)
+       MyCqListener::OnEvent called with CREATE, key[Order4], value(4, product z, 102)

 This is a simple example showing how to register for serialization of custom objects using the PdxSerializable class.
 
 ## Prerequisites
-* An installation of Apache Geode.
-* Apache Geode Native, built and installed.
-* Apache Geode Native examples, built and installed.
-* A `GEODE_HOME` environment variable set to the location of the Apache Geode installation.
-* `GEODE_HOME/bin` in the execution path.
+* Install [Apache Geode](https://geode.apache.org)
+* Build and install [Apache Geode Native](https://github.com/apache/geode-native)
+* Apache Geode Native examples, built and installed
+* Set `GEODE_HOME` to the install directory of Apache Geode
 
 ## Running
-1. Set the current directory to the `pdxserializable` directory in your example workspace.
-
-  ```
-  $ cd workspace/examples/cpp/pdxserializable
-  ```
-
-1. Run the `startserver.sh` script to start the Geode server, create a region, and populate the region with sample data.
-
-  ```
-  $ sh ./startserver.sh
-  /Users/user/geode/bin/gfsh
-
-  (1) Executing - start locator --name=locator
-  ...
-  (2) Executing - start server --name=server
-  ...
-  (3) Executing - create region --name=custom_orders --type=PARTITION
-
-  Member | Status
-  ------ | -------------------------------------------
-  server | Region "/custom_orders" created on "server"
-  ```
-
-1. Execute `pdxserializable`:
-
-  ```
-  $ ./pdxserializable
-  Create orders
-  Storing orders in the region
-  Getting the orders from the region
-  OrderID: 1
-  Product Name: product x
-  Quantity: 23
-  OrderID: 2
-  Product Name: product y
-  Quantity: 37
-  ```
-
-1. Stop the server
-
-  ```
-  $ sh ./stopserver.sh
-  /Users/user/geode/bin/gfsh
-  (1) Executing - connect
-  ...
-  (2) Executing - stop server --name=server
-  ...
-  (3) Executing - stop locator --name=locator
-  ....
-  ```
+1. From a command shell, set the current directory to the `pdxserializable` directory in your example workspace.
+
+    ```console
+    $ cd workspace/examples/cpp/pdxserializable
+    ```
+
+2. Run the `startserver` script to start the Geode cluster with authentication and create a region.
+
+   For Windows cmd:
+
+    ```console
+    $ powershell.exe -File startserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Windows Powershell:
+
+    ```console
+    $ startserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Bash:
+
+    ```console
+    $ ./startserver.sh
+    ```
+
+3. Execute `pdxserializable`, expect the following output:
+
+       Create orders
+       Storing orders in the region
+       Getting the orders from the region
+       OrderID: 1
+       Product Name: product x
+       Quantity: 23
+       OrderID: 2
+       Product Name: product y
+       Quantity: 37
+
+4. Run the `stopserver` script to gracefully shutdown the Geode cluster.
+
+   For Windows cmd:
+
+    ```console
+    $ powershell.exe -File stopserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Windows Powershell:
+
+    ```console
+    $ stopserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Bash:
+
+    ```console
+    $ ./stopserver.sh
+    ```

 ## Running
-1. Set the current directory to the `remotequery` directory in your example workspace.
-
-  ```
-  $ cd workspace/examples/cpp/remotequery
-  ```
-
-1. Run the `startserver.sh` script to start the Geode server, create a region, and populate the region with sample data.
-
-  ```
-  $ sh ./startserver.sh
-  /Users/user/geode/bin/gfsh
-
-  (1) Executing - start locator --name=locator
-  ...
-  (2) Executing - start server --name=server
-  ...
-  (3) Executing - create region --name=custom_orders --type=PARTITION
-
-  Member | Status
-  ------ | -------------------------------------------
-  server | Region "/custom_orders" created on "server"
-  ```
-
-1. Execute `remotequery`:
-
-  ```
-  $ ./remotequery
-  Create orders
-  Storing orders in the region
-  Getting the orders from the region
-  The following orders have a quantity greater than 30:
-  OrderID: 2 Product Name: product y Quantity: 37
-  OrderID: 4 Product Name: product z Quantity: 102
-  OrderID: 6 Product Name: product z Quantity: 42
-  ```
-
-1. Stop the server
-
-  ```
-  $ sh ./stopserver.sh
-  /Users/user/geode/bin/gfsh
-  (1) Executing - connect
-  ...
-  (2) Executing - stop server --name=server
-  ...
-  (3) Executing - stop locator --name=locator
-  ....
-  ```
+1. From a command shell, set the current directory to the `remotequery` directory in your example workspace.
+
+    ```console
+    $ cd workspace/examples/cpp/remotequery
+    ```
+
+2. Run the `startserver` script to start the Geode cluster with authentication and create a region.
+
+   For Windows cmd:
+
+    ```console
+    $ powershell.exe -File startserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Windows Powershell:
+
+   ```console
+   $ startserver.ps1
+    ```
+
+   For Bash:
+
+    ```console
+    $ ./startserver.sh
+    ```
+
+3. Execute `remotequery`, expect the following output:
