Automated or remote installation of components on an Amazon instance

I am trying to figure out a way to either have an Amazon instance install various software components automatically right after launch or to execute commands to do those installations remotely.

I have done some searching and so far have found the following references.

AMAZON EC2 - Launch command on remote Windows machine, given admin credentials

Unattended Amazon EC2 Install Script - Unfortunately, this is for Linux. I would have to figure out how to write a Windows equivalent, if at all possible

Perhaps the Invoke-Command Powershell cmdlet would help.

Unfortunately, I don't have time to investigate further so I will have to come back to this later.
