    Where did the "Install-Module" function/cmdlet come from? It doesn't appear to be part of stock PowerShell.

    If you mean the Install-Package, it is part of the Windows Management Framework V5 preview and OneGet.

    If you want to see which modules are available in the system, try:

    Get-Module -ListAvailable

    To import a module, use:



    A great place if you have further questions about PowerShell is the website.

    @Yooakim:That part I'm familiar with. :)

    I was wanting to steal the "install-module powershellcookbook" bit that he did to show off Show-Object

    Yes, get WMF5 with PowerShell 5, which is currently CTP.

    @dsolodow: You'll find that in OneGet - it's part of the WMF 5 preview.

    This session and the Best Practices and Patterns: Let's Get Serious were my 2 favorites. I wish I could have been there this year. My favorite moment over all was in this video when Jeffrey Snover contemplated using Don's MacBook to do something. The expression and the noises he made were priceless!

    I tried to download rhe Windows Management Framwork 5.0. It said this can't apply to my computer. Can somebody help please. Thanks

    This is confusing is because there is a 'psget' module in the chocolatey repository, and installable with OneGet, but that is not the one Jeffrey demonstrated in this video.    Instead, he was using the Windows Management Framework 5.0 Preview May 2014 version from, which includes the 'PowerShellGet" module.

    I have to say I found the making fun of the author of the PS module in the PS Get demo so distasteful and then saying he should have his MVP revoke was such a bad joke to make from one MVP about another. PS is great but grand standing does not help to push it along. Lets keep it classy.

    I find it ironic that Mr. Snover, architect of the next-gen command-line interface for Windows, is such as dreadful typist.

    Also, what's with the angst between Mr. Snover and Mr. Russinovich? Always, snarky comments about each other at their respective sessions. Guys, you're on the same team.
