PrimalScript 2016's ribbon-based user interface has been updated to provide virtually all functions you use every day in the home tab. Create your own script templates based on your requirements and business needs to accelerate your ability to deliver solutions faster.

The script packager offers advanced option and platform selections to deliver solutions targeted at specific environments. You can restrict packages by domain, machine, user, platform and MAC address to avoid unauthorized script execution.

Our MSI database builder combined with the ability to run your deployment commands enable you to swiftly modify a solution, package it, create an installer for it and deploy it on your network, all with a single click of your mouse.

Our restore point feature provides you with an additional safety net if you are just experimenting with a script. Easily roll back to where you started from or define your own specific points as you progress during development.

Key Features

Powerful Script Editor

Supporting over 50 languages with syntax coloring, brace matching, code folding and a large number of enhanced features, this editor has everything you need.

Multi-Platform support¹

Execute and debug your scripts in 32-bit or 64-bit mode, with or without elevation, all from within a single IDE. Tie your scripts to a specific platform or remote server with a single meta-comment.

Integrated console

Developing scripts and using them to accomplish your day-to-day tasks no longer requires switching back and forth between editor and console. Run your scripts in any integrated console with the push of a button. Any console, any platform, any time.

Multi-Platform debugger¹

Debug your scripts in our integrated next generation debugger on 32-bit or 64-bit without switching applications or restarting. Explore and modify variables and their content from our new debug console for PowerShell and VBScript / JScript.

Remote Debugger

PrimalScript is the only scripting IDE with a remote debugger for VBScript, JScript and PowerShell. And just like the local debugger, it can target 32-bit and 64-bit processes with just the click of a mouse.

Navigate your code

Jump easily between functions, script blocks, to do list items and bookmarks with PrimalScript's enhanced navigation bar.


Unsurpassed code-completion and instant help features guide you through developing more complex solutions in less time. Use .NET or COM objects in your PowerShell or ActiveX language code and get the same level of support.

Package and Deploy your solutions

Package your scripts as stand-alone solutions for your users, create MSI databases for GPO distribution and run your custom deployment commands, all from the same environment where you create them.

¹ 64-bit execution and debugging require a 64-bit operating system.
