Engine Type Prerequisites

Monday, November 16th, 2015 by Devin Leaman
When building executables in PrimalScript or PowerShell Studio there are various engine types to choose from, each of them with a prerequisite that must be installed on the machine that will be running your program. For example, if you build an executable in PowerShell Studio and select the SAPIEN PowerShell V2 Host (Command Line) Win32 engine then the .NET Framework 2.0 is required on the target machine. Here is a table that shows the prerequisites for each engine type: Engine Prerequisite SAPIEN PowerShell V2 Host (Command Line) Win32 .NET Framework 2.0 SAPIEN PowerShell V2 Host (Command Line) x64 .NET Framework 2.0 SAPIEN PowerShell V2…   More »

You can use VBScript – or any other Active Scripting language, for that matter – as a scripting language for PowerShell.   More »

Registry access from 32 to 64 bit and back

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009 by Alex Riedel
Just recently, I received an email asking how you can access the 64 bit registry from a 32 bit script, or vice versa. The task the individual was facing was to come up with a way to verify installed applications via checking the corresponding Windows Installer registry entries. For a C++ programmer with access to the API, that really is not a big issue. From VBScript, using only WshShell.RegRead that is a completely different story.
