PSCX 2.0

I have mentioned  PowerShell Community Extensions many times over the last few years. I have found them a very useful set of utilities to extend the basic PowerShell install. With PowerShell v2 there was an irritation that a few of the cmdlets


overrode the PowerShell v2 cmdlets of the same name.

That has been fixed with the PSCX v2 beta that is available from It is module based so use it on PowerShell 2. It is a simple zip file, so download it, unblock it and unzip it to your module path.

It loads using import-module and looks to be full of goodies.  The PSCX guys have done a good job with this. Time to give it a whirl and see how it works.
