local admin script



I am wondering what below script will do. When I searched the keywords on google it give not give me the right answer.

$SecurePasswordKey = '76492d1116743f0423413b16050a5345MgB8AE='
$key = (3,4,2,3,56,34,254,222,1,1,2,23,42,3)
$SecurePassword = ConvertTo-SecureString -String $SecurePasswordKey -Key $key
New-LocalUser "admin" -Password $SecurePassword

I want to use this script to configure LAPS.

    It generates new admin account with some kind of complex password. If you are with AD and LAPS, you don't need this at all.

    This may be the wrong forum for this question. Try asking in a power shell section?
