Enable WMI Explorer Windows 8 Remote Connection Permissions

Monday, December 14th, 2015 by Devin Leaman
Earlier in October, I posted a blog about remote connection failures that occur when using WMI Explorer on a remote computer running Windows 8. This solution doesn't apply to computers running other versions of Windows. To sum it up, you need to make three changes for WMI Explorer to connect to a Windows 8 remote machine. Allow Remote Administration through the Windows Firewall Give the user the required remote access to COM security Give the user the required remote access to the WMI root namespace and sub-namespaces. For those who have this issue, but don’t have the time to go…   More »

iPowerShell Pro: How to select, edit and execute shared scripts on your server

Friday, June 7th, 2013 by Ferdinand Rios
Continuing with our series of iPowerShell Pro V3 features brings us to the Scripts button on the enhanced mobile PowerShell Web Access (PSWA) console. To start off, you need to make sure that your server has access to the same cloud based folder that you are connected to on iPowerShell Pro. Make sure that the cloud service that you are using is installed on your server, i.e. if you are using Dropbox, install the dropbox client on your server. You can "share" the scripts folder in several ways. 1) Create a folder under your cloud service folder on your server…   More »

Get-GuiDate: A PowerShell Calendar Tool

Monday, August 24th, 2009 by SAPIEN Technologies
Forms and dialogs can augment PowerShell scripts or even resurface them completely to make them more friendly for people who aren't familiar with the command line. In some cases, a form can even function as a complete script in and of itself. The Get-GuiDate script, developed from a prototype written with PrimalForms, is an example of a script that is completely centered around a control (the Windows.Forms.MonthCalendar control) embedded in a Windows Form.   More »

Folder Usage Function

Thursday, March 5th, 2009 by Jeffery Hicks
A few days ago I went over the PowerShell oneliner from SAPIEN's March '09 newsletter. I suggested using it in a scriptblock to save typing. Another possibility is to turn it into a function. Even better would be a function that accepts pipelined input. This would permit me to pipe in a list of folder names and get a usage object for each one. Here's how it works.   More »
