32-bit vs 64-bit PowerShell ISE

    I'm trying to get better at using PowerShell, and I've seen that you can get a nice GUI interface using PowerShell ISE.  On my Windows 7 machine, when I click the Start menu and then start typing "PowerShell ISE" (without the double quotes) I see there's a 32-bit version and a 64-bit version.  Cool, and all that, but which "should" I use?

    Basically, use the 64 bit version unless you are interacting with software or cmdlets that only work with the 32 bit version of PowerShell.

    Doctor Who :

    I had the same issue but succeed with the below commands  a while back.

    From Start-->Run

    c:\windows\syswow64\Windowspowershell\v1.0\powershell_ise.exe

    if you have errors in the scripts try to set privileges

    Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Scope CurrentUser
