Microsoft has released an update to Windows PowerShell 2.0 Core Help. “The Windows PowerShell 2.0 Core Help – May 2011 Update CHM file includes updated Cmdlet Help, Provider Help, and conceptual “About” Help topics for the core commands that are built into Windows PowerShell 2.0,” Microsoft stated.
“The CHM file is enclosed in an executable (.exe) file for secure access. This download does not include Windows PowerShell 2.0 or Help topics for Windows PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment, or any other Windows PowerShell modules. Earlier versions of these Help topics are included in Windows PowerShell 2.0. To see them, at the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type “Get-Help”,” the company explained.
“These Help topics also appear online in the TechNet Library at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=210598 and are updated continually. This download provides a snapshot of the updated topics as of May 2011 in a convenient CHM format.”
Customers can also visit Windows PowerShell Core site on TechNet in order to get the same help topics as those available for download. And, on the Microsoft TechNet Script Center, IT pros will also be able to find an overview of Windows PowerShell 2.0.
