Export-CSV, now what?

Friday, May 7th, 2010 by Alex Riedel
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? At that point, your friendly neighborhood…   More »

PrimalForms – File Dialog Hangs on Windows Vista SP1 with .Net 3.0 /3.5

Thursday, February 26th, 2009 by David Corrales
Some of our PrimalForms users may have encountered issues with the OpenFileDialog or SaveFileDialog running under Windows Vista. The bad news is that scripts which include OpenFileDialogs or SaveFileDialogs and that previously worked on Windows XP may encounter freezing issues on Vista SP1 systems with .Net 3.0/3.5. The affected scripts will hang when PowerShell executes the File Dialog’s ShowDialog function. It's important to note that this issue is not limited to PowerShell but may affect any other .Net application. The good news is that there is a work-around for this issue. In order to prevent this problem, you must set…   More »
