Back From TechEd: Fixing Name Resolution Issue with PowerShell

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014 by David Corrales
I really enjoy going to TechEd every year where I get to meet old friends and make new friends. It is also a great opportunity to speak with our users face to face. The one thing I do not enjoy about TechEd (and this seems to happen every year) is that upon return to the office, my computer no longer can discover other computers on any network, nor can I connect to a network share using the machine name. At some point during TechEd, I connect to a wireless network and it decides to change my network node type to…   More »

Monday, June 18th, 2012 by Ferdinand Rios
Well, MSTechEd 2012 is done. It was a great show, very busy, lots of PowerShell related inquiries and a lot of fun. We had a great location on the show floor, at the crossroads of two major sections, with great traffic and visibility. Robert Morey and David Corrales (lead developer on PowerShell Studio) worked very hard talking about our products and did a great job on the show floor. And our thanks go back to Alex Riedel for making PrimalScript 2012 the BEST PrimalScript ever and to Maricela Soria for her beautiful graphics for our booth, flyers and in product…   More »

Back From TechEd 2011: Why create a GUI for my PowerShell Scripts?

Friday, June 10th, 2011 by David Corrales
Why create a GUI for my PowerShell Scripts? Microsoft Windows became successful because it offers an easy to use visual interface which doesn’t require users to remember console commands. Users still prefer a mouse click over having to type a command. One of the top reasons users create a GUI for their scripts is to distribute the script to a non-PowerShell user. For example, using PrimalForms or PrimalScript 2011 users can package their GUI script into an executable and distribute it to their help desk or other end users. The GUI doesn’t require the end user to open the console…   More »

Back From TechEd 2011: PrimalForms 2011 is a full featured PowerShell ISE

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011 by David Corrales
We had a great show at TechEd 201. We’d like to thank all of the people who took the time to pass by our booth. I would like to take this time to answer some common questions we were asked at TechEd 2011.   Isn’t PrimalForms 2011 only for creating GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces) in PowerShell? No, PrimalForms 2011 is a full featured PowerShell editor and much more. The product started as a GUI only tool but has evolved considerably from the Community Edition. In fact, you are not required to use the GUI designer in PrimalForms 2011 at all.…   More »
