Windows PowerShell 1.0 English installation packages for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 and for Windows XP Service Pack 2

Microsoft Windows® PowerShell is a new command-line shell and scripting language that is designed for system administration and automation. Windows PowerShell lets IT professionals and developers control and automate the administration of Windows and applications. Also, Windows PowerShell is built on the Microsoft .NET Framework.

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
