PowerShell 64-bit is an automation platform and scripting language for Windows and Windows Server that allows you to simplify the management of your systems. Unlike other text-based shells, PowerShell harnesses the power of the .NET Framework, providing rich objects and a massive set of built-in functionality for taking control of your Windows environments.

The app Desired State Configuration (DSC) is a platform for testing and ensuring the declarative state of a system. DSC allows you to scale complex deployments across environments, enables collaboration of management, and corrects for configuration drift.

The PowerShell 64-bit Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE) is a Windows application that supports enhanced usage of Power Shell for beginners and experts alike. The ISE's many features include:
  • A built-in editor for writing, testing, and debugging scripts
  • Full IntelliSense tab completion, syntax highlighting, and context-sensitive help
  • A myriad of keyboard shortcuts
  • Support for right-to-left languages
  • Extensible add-ons
Note: Microsoft .NET Framework needs to be installed. Requires WinRM 2.0 CTP3 to use remoting features.

Also Available: Windows PowerShell (32-bit)
