WMF 5.0 question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good day,

    I have a script that uses the "write-zip" cmdlet. This is a PSCX cmdlet. I downloaded the Pscx 3.2.0 and it says that the .msi fixes some issues with WMF 5.0 September release... What version of WMF 5.0 is released? Where is the download link? Does the most recent version of 5.0 already have the write-zip cmdlet?

  • Bill,

    My questions are in regards to powershell particularly powershell version 5.0 (WMF 5.0).

    What version of WMF 5.0 is released?

    Where is the download link for WMF 5.0?

    Does the most recent version of 5.0 already have the write-zip cmdlet?

  • I did search and I did find.... I found a lot of WMF 5.0 releases going all the way up to September 2014.

    I understand you do not have the knowledge to answer this question, as such I will ask elsewhere... Once I get the answer I will let you know so you have the answer and you can better respond to people who ask a similar question.

  • You can answer this question very easily, all by yourself, using these procedures.

    1. Do a a web search. That is always step 1 before asking a question. Here is a sample query:

    http://www.google.com/search?&q=windows+management+framework

    2. Look through the search results and figure out which is the latest. The most recent is 5.0 production preview, 9/8/2015.

    3. Click the Details button when you get a search result to see the date.

    WMF 5 does not have a rite-Zi and will never have a Write-Zip.

  • Correct, and there is not a need to even ask that question. Search MSDN and you will not find a reference to a Write-Zip cmdlet. Search the web, and you will find it in PSCX.

    This searching stuff doesn't require Jedi powers or magic. Just a little effort.

    As noted by the inimitable Raymond Chen:

    Don’t be helpless: You can find information too, if you try

  • Of course you didn't even read the page in the link.  It says the RTM has NOT been released.

    Which, of course, is still not a scripting issue.

    Perhaps you should not irritate the Jedi by masquerading as one.

    Seriously.  No self-respecting Jedi would ask such trivial questions except to challenge a novice'
