PowerShell Help Community Edition 64

Our Powershell Help tool has been a favorite download for quite some time now. The built-in help command in the Powershell console is helpful if you need just some quick lookup, but for browsing and reading the console just isn’t good enough.

The CHM file Microsoft released is a pretty nice graphical way of getting help for the built-in cmdlets but it’s a closed file and information for third party or even other Microsoft snapins is not available and cannot be added.

This new version of our popular Powershell help tool allows importing any xml help file and about files from other vendors and puts all this combined information on your desktop or notebook. Powershell doesn’t even need to be installed in order to use this.

PrimalCSV64

PowerShell 2.0 has added the ability to export and import objects and store them as CSV files. CSV (Comma Separated Values) files have been a common file format since they where first used around 1967 on IBM mainframes and have been in constant use since then.

If you need to edit CSV files most people use Microsoft Excel, which registers as the default editor for the .CSV extension. This is fine on your desktop or laptop computer, but when was the last time you found a Windows 2008 R2 server with Microsoft Office installed?

PrimalCSV is a dedicated, single file CSV editor you can just place on your flash drive and carry around with you. Since it is a single executable file with as few dependencies as we could manage, this tool requires no installation. It is available in 32 and 64 bit versions.

PrimalCSV is free for personal and non-profit use (please read the End-User-License-Agreement on first startup).

PrimalPad2012x64

PrimalPad 2012 Community Edition


System Administrators are a busy lot and some of them literally run around all day fighting fires on computers no longer connected to anything. Others use remote access to tend to a large number of servers. Or both.

Thanks to scripting, most repetitive tasks are taken care of. But sometimes you need to double check a script at some location or modify something you have, to fit the task at hand. Since you are on the road, literally or virtually, you don’t have PrimalScript with you. Or you just are not supposed to install anything on that particular computer. That is when you usually revert to notepad. Not anymore.

Meet PrimalPad, the single file, color coding editor for VBScript, JScript, HTML and PowerShell.

No installation, no dependencies. Just keep it on your thumbdrive and run it wherever you need it.

Now for the best thing, it is FREE for personal, educational and non-profit use. Make sure you read the license agreement that pops up when you first start it on any computer.
