Creating a process

Posted by: | April 28, 2009 | No Comment |
I’ve looked at creating a process before – using [WMIClass].
With CTP3 we have a few more options
Start-Process -Filepath notepad.exe
Invoke-WMIMethod -Class Win32_process -Name Create -ArgumentList notepad.exe
Set-WMIinstance -Class Win32_process -Arguments @{Path=c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe}
The first two just happen.  The third option will throw an exception because it can’t find the instance and then create one.
Three options – which to use.  In this case probably start-process but the invoke-wmimethod is useful.
