Microsoft's mighty Windows administration framework gets even better with the help of these tools and materials. Almost all are free; the one for-fee tool is well worth the cost.

For instance, you can select Active Directory objects or Exchange objects manually or by using filters. Then you tell PowerGUI that you want to move these objects to a new location and it will create the corresponding PowerShell script which you can enhance with your own code. This can be helpful for PowerShell beginners. However, you should have some basic knowledge of PowerShell or at least some experiences in object oriented programming.
The real power of PowerGUI is that it helps you find the objects and their attributes easily. If you ever wrote a program to manipulate objects in a Microsoft application, then you know what I am talking about. PowerGUIs script editor is great, too. Download Free Norma Uni Iso 2859 1 Sampling more.
It support syntax highlighting, autocomplete and offers bracket matching functionality. Most importantly, it comes with a nice debugger. I, personally, don’t like to write a script or program longer than five lines without a debugger at hand. The supports pipeline debugging and breakpoints. To get a quick overview of PowerGUI, I highly recommend watching this short.

Sez: Check out the amazing PowerShellIDE. Many of you probably already know Dr Tobias Weltner from his product SystemScripter. The PowerShell team has been talking to Tobias on and off for years now and those discussions have clearly paid off. PowerShellIDE is a free 'experimental editor' whose functions will be integrated into SystemScripter. The things that I really like are the rich intellisense, rich syntax coloring, rich inspection capabilities, and rich debugging that PowerShellIDE brings to the table.
Did I mention that it was RICH? Check it out yourself and you'll see exactly what I mean. This tool can really accelerate learning and scripting PowerShell. One word of caution: Be careful using PowerShellIDE, if you drool too much on your keyboard, it could stop working.:-) Jeffrey Snover Windows PowerShell Architect To use PowerShellIDE, you need to install Microsoft Windows PowerShell Beta first.
This product requires the.NET 2.0 Runtimes which you can get here: Microsoft Windows PowerShell is available here: And. Potential 'competition' (either way, we all win) for PowerShellIDE is, of course, Karl Prosser's totally fabulous. Karl really should release his Alpha ASAP because the functionality in his editor is slightly ahead of PowerShellIDE. These two guys need to either TALK to each other and join forces or start a giant WordPerfect vs. Word thing in the PowerShell world.:).
There's lotsa IDEs. I'm not even sure this one is the first (as noted, PSHAnalyzer's beenbopping around for a while now). PrimalScript 4.1 (the aforementioned PowerShellIDE and PSHAnalyzer, and I'm sure the other major VBS editors (like VBSEdit) are working hard.
I mean, you have to expect that much of the VBS market is looking at PowerShell, right? One counter-comment on the 'no need for a GUI for a shell.' If all you're using PowerShell for is as a shell. If you're developing scripts in it, though, then an IDE is pretty much a necessity. PowerShell just doesn't have any kind of file-editing capabilities built in. I think that's where most of these IDEs are going, is with script development, not just straight interactive shell usage.
