  • It is not possible to run PowerShell from a web page. Use the above suggestion intead.

  • Another way to add GUI to your PowerShell scripts to add .NET based forms and adding control to perform or run desired Scripts.

  • Well.... yes and no. It's true that you can't run PoSh code directly from a webpage. But you can trigger PoSh scripts to run on different systems from a webpage. Trying to run scripts on floating og mobile desktops is not something I'd want to try (to many environmental variables to consider), but on an internal server, with the propper authentication set up; we do that for quite a few things.

  • You can't run it directly from any webpage. You need som sort of web app wrapper to kick it off. Also, trying to run scripts on floating systems from a webpage is not something I'd recomend trying, as there are way to many environmental variables to consider. However, on static systems it's fully possible:

    C# wrapper Code:

    private List<PSObject> RunPowershellScript(string relativePath, List<CommandParameter> parameters)
                using (PowerShell PowerShellInstance = PowerShell.Create())
                    RunspaceConfiguration runspaceConfiguration = RunspaceConfiguration.Create();
                    Runspace runspace = RunspaceFactory.CreateRunspace(runspaceConfiguration);
                    RunspaceInvoke scriptInvoker = new RunspaceInvoke(runspace);
                    Pipeline pipeline = runspace.CreatePipeline();
                    //Here's how you add a new script with arguments
                    Command cmd = new Command(Server.MapPath(relativePath));
                    foreach (var item in parameters)
                    // Execute PowerShell script
                    var res = pipeline.Invoke();
                    var results =res.ToList();
                    return results;

    Also check out PoshServer. Google it.
