"It's a Wrap! Windows PowerShell 1.0 Released!"

As it was announced on the official blog of the tool.

«For those of you unfamiliar with Windows PowerShell, it is a best of breed next-generation commandline shell designed from the ground up to be flexible and powerful while still remaining easy to use.»

I'm not sure about the last part of the sentence though :)

Windows PowerShell includes the following features:
• More than 130 command-line tools (called "cmdlets") for performing common system administration tasks such as managing services, processes, event logs, certificates, the registry, and for using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
• Command-line tools that are easy to use that have standard naming conventions and common parameters, as well as that have simple tools for sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects
• Support for existing scripting languages, existing command-line tools, and multiple versions of Windows such as Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista™, and the Microsoft Windows Server code name “Longhorn" operating system
• Features that let users explore data stores such as the registry and certificate stores as if they are file systems
• Standard utilities for managing Windows data in different stores and formats such as Active Directory Service Interfaces, Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), Component Object Model (COM) objects, ActiveX Data Objects (ADO), HTML, and XML
• Sophisticated expression parsing and the .NET Framework object manipulation at the command line, such as the pipelining of objects, helps IT professionals to work more efficiently and effectively
• An extensible interface that enables independent software vendors and enterprise developers to build custom cmdlets to meet unique application and system administration requirements

Try it and decide for yourselves.

Old post :) 

It would be cool to be able to run powershell via outsystems platform apps (without restrictions). 

Greetings Robert,

The Powershell Commander component was just recently released on Forge. Perhaps it will work for the use cases you have in mind.

RE PS extension could you run PS with full administrative permissions? 

Based on it says on its Overview page, it depends of the server where OutSystems is installed - if you have an user with administrative permissions there, you can. By default it runs with the normal permissions of normal OutSystems Apps, but you can pass credentials to login as that privileged user.

But I didn't test it, so can't confirm that it works.

Hi, Nice to see my tool being mentioned. It's my first post on the Forge. So if you run into any bugs or have any questions let me know via the support method on the Forge.

I'll try update it as soon as possible when nescecary.
