Environment variables, registry, config next to the file or profile (as the config you can just put the powershell script with assignment and variables, and to execute it)

in practice it will be convenient to use the fact that the native PowerShell can parse.
json clixml, csv and xml part.

Example store configuration in xml.
function getConfig ($configFile){
 if (Test-Path ((Get-Location).Path + "\$configFile")){
 $config = ([xml]$(Get-Content $configFile)).configuration
 if ($? -and $config){
 return $config
 Write-Host 'Config file is incorrect'
 else {
 Write-Host 'Config file not found'

function init {
 $files = $configuration.logFiles.File
 foreach ($file in $files){
 New-Item-Path ($(Get-Location).Path + "\Logs\$(Get-Date-Format 'yyyy')\$(Get-Date -Format 'MM')\$(Get-Date -Format 'dd')") -Name $file.value-ItemType File-Force | Out-Null

$ErrorActionPreference = 'SilentlyContinue'
$configFile = 'config.xml'
$configuration = getConfig ($configFile)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
 <file key="Full" value="logFull.log">
 <file key="Warning" value="logWarning.log">
 <file key="Error" value="logError.log">
