Microsoft Script Explorer for Windows PowerShell shutting down.Script Explorer Administration Monday, April 15, 2013 3:39 PM
For those who are familiar with Microsoft Script Explorer for Windows PowerShell, you know that we haven't released additional updates to it since we published the release candidate (RC) in August 2012. Over the past few months, we have been talking with customers and partners and taking a hard look at the adoption rate of the RC in terms of the number of downloads and the feedback we're received to date.
One of the results of this analysis was that the adoption and usage of the pre-release versions of Script Explorer were not at the level we had hoped. Part of this stems from the fact that customers already have a number of options in the market for discovering and sharing PowerShell scripts, and most appear content to continue using these existing mechanisms. As a result, we've decided not to bring the Script Explorer project to RTM.
In the meantime, we will start winding down the Script Explorer project. This will be a gradual process to allow time for existing users to move to other tools. We'll start by removing the RC package from the Download Center this week.
For those who have already downloaded pre-release versions and are actively using Script Explorer in their environments, we will continue to operate the back-end script aggregation service used by Script Explorer for a few more months. We plan to turn off the service on June 14, 2013.
