As of September 2015, I have released version 2 of my PowerShell Script Template, which includes a number of improvements over this version, in particular the use of the new PSLogging PowerShell module that significantly improves the creation and management of log files. This version of the template is no longer supported or maintained, so please upgrade to the new version today!
Version 2 of the template is available here – PowerShell Script Template v2.
Recently I put up an article on how to easily create log files in PowerShell. If you want to read that post, then check out this link – PowerShell: How to easily create log files for your scripts.
Today’s article is the next step in the process of creating awesome PowerShell scripts.
As of September 2015, I have released version 2 of my PowerShell Logging solution, and is now known as PSLogging.
There has been a number of significant improvements with the most notable being that the PowerShell Logging function library has now been converted into a fully fledged PowerShell module. All of the details about the new version, the improvements and how to use and integrate the new version into your new and existing scripts can be found here – PSLogging PowerShell module.
Note: This version of the logging solution is no longer supported or maintained, so please upgrade to the new version today!
Today I thought I would share some thing that I have developed over the last year or so as I have been working more and more with PowerShell…. some standard functions that can simply be dot sourced and called at any time so that all my scripts have some awesome logs to go along with the awesome script.
Last week at work I was having such a great time until my Windows machine got a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). I was trying to figure out what caused it, until one of my colleagues told me about BlueScreenView – an awesome little app that loads the minidump file created by Windows and will pin point exactly what the problem was. It is so awesome, that it can actually re-create the blue screen of death and give you a preview of what it looked like.
