SHORT DESCRIPTION

    Explains how to use the PowerShell_Ise.exe command-line tool.  
 

LONG DESCRIPTION

    PowerShell_Ise.exe starts a Windows PowerShell Integrated 
    Scripting Environment (ISE) session. You can run it in Cmd.exe 
    and in Windows PowerShell.  
 
    To run PowerShell_ISE.exe, type PowerShell_ISE.exe, PowerShell_ISE,  
    or ISE. 
 

SYNTAX

     PowerShell_Ise[.exe] 
     PowerShell_ISE[.exe] 
     ISE[.exe] 
          [–File]<FilePath[]> [–NoProfile] [–MTA] 
          –Help | ? | -? | /?  
    Displays the syntax and describes the command-line switches. 
 
 

PARAMETERS

    -File 
    Opens the specified files in Windows PowerShell ISE. The  
    parameter name ("-File") is optional. To list more than one  
    file, enter one text string enclosed in quotation marks. Use  
    commas to separate the file names within the string.  
 
    For example: 
        PowerShell_ISE -File "File1.ps1,File2.ps1,File3.xml".  
 
    Spaces between the file names are permitted in Windows PowerShell,  
    but might not be interpreted correctly by other programs, such as  
    Cmd.exe. 
 
    You can use this parameter to open any text file, including Windows  
    PowerShell script files and XML files. 
 
 
    -Mta 
    Starts Windows PowerShell ISE using a multi-threaded apartment. This  
    parameter is introduced in Windows PowerShell 3.0. Single-threaded  
    apartment (STA) is the default. 
 
    -NoProfile 
    Does not run Windows PowerShell profiles. By default, Windows PowerShell  
    profiles are run in every session. 
 
    This parameter is recommended when you are writing shared content, such as  
    functions and scripts that will be run on systems with different profiles.  
    For more information, see about_Profiles  
    (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=113729).
