Which versions of PowerShell do you run?

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016 by June Blender
The PowerShell team released Windows PowerShell 5.0 on Windows 10 last year and just re-released Windows Management Framework (WMF) 5.0 for earlier versions of Windows. But, we know from years of experience that many people don't upgrade their versions quickly. It takes time to get to know and trust a new version. In a large enterprise, it takes time to do the parallel testing to certify that a new product is secure and compatible with the software that the organization uses. Take the survey: Which version of Windows PowerShell do you use? For those of us who are writing scripts and modules to share, this…   More »

Running PowerShell Scripts: Survey Results

Monday, February 8th, 2016 by June Blender
We're always evaluating the best, easiest, and most efficient ways to write, run, and publish Windows Powershell scripts and modules. But, our starting point is always how people work now.

But, it's an important question for productivity. Those of us who live the PowerShell life run scripts all the time. We might also delegate the task of running scripts to others. If the way that we run our scripts isn't efficient, we (or our delegates) lose at least some of the time we gained from automation. Some of us (okay, me) run scripts from the console. We'll open a console…   More »

New blog poll: Which PrimalScript panels do you use regularly?

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013 by Alex Riedel
Look to the right. A new blog poll is up. We would like to know which panels in PrimalScript you use regularly. That doesn’t mean you need to have one visible all the time to check it. If you use it, in any fashion, check it. If you don’t use, don’t check it. Don’t even know what it is or what it does? Don’t check it. We are always looking and verifying if the features PrimalScript has are of any use to you. If they are not, we’d rather remove them to keep the application trim and tailored to your…   More »
