Installing via NuGet

The easiest way to install Vaetech.PowerShell is via NuGet.

In Visual Studio's Package Manager Console, enter the following command:

Install-Package Vaetech.PowerShell

Getting the Source Code

First, you'll need to clone Vaetech.PowerShell from my GitHub repository. To do this using the command-line version of Git, you'll need to issue the following command in your terminal:

git clone --recursive https://github.com/cochachyLE-Eng/Vaetech.PowerShell.git

Updating the Source Code

Occasionally you might want to update your local copy of the source code if I have made changes to Vaetech.PowerShell since you downloaded the source code in the step above. To do this using the command-line version fo Git, you'll need to issue the following commands in your terminal within the Vaetech.PowerShell directory:

git pull
git submodule update

Building

In the top-level Vaetech.PowerShell directory, there are a number of solution files; they are:

  • Vaetech.PowerShell.sln - includes projects for .NET 4.5/4.6.1/4.8, .NETStandard 2.1 as well as the unit tests.

Once you've opened the appropriate Vaetech.PowerShell solution file in Visual Studio, you can choose the Debug or Release build configuration and then build.

Both Visual Studio 2017 and Visual Studio 2019 should be able to build Vaetech.PowerShell without any issues, but older versions such as Visual Studio 2015 will require modifications to the projects in order to build correctly. It has been reported that adding NuGet package references to

Newtonsoft.Json (>= 13.0.1) System.ComponentModel (>= 4.3.0) System.ComponentModel.Annotations (>= 5.0.0) Vaetech.Data.ContentResult (>= 1.6.6) Vaetech.Runtime.Utils (>= 1.0.3)

will allow Vaetech.PowerShell to build successfully.

Using Vaetech.PowerShell

How can it be used?

At its most basic, it only takes a few lines of code to run PowerShell queries with lambda expressions.

// Gets the processes that are running on the local computer.
var getProcessResponse = PShell.GetProcess("svchost").WhereObject(c => c.StartTime > DateTime.Now.AddDays(-5)).FormatList(x => new { x.Name, x.Id, x.StartTime });
// Get Command
string command = getProcessResponse.GetCommand();

Get results with ErrorAction in custom collection

// Gets the processes running on the local computer, in custom collection.
var getProcessResponse = PShell.GetProcess(ErrorAction.SilentlyContinue,"svchost", "w3wp").SelectObject(x => new { x.Name, x.Id, x.StartTime }).WhereObject(c => c.StartTime.Date > DateTime.Now.AddDays(-24).Date).ConvertToJson();
// Get Command
string command = getProcessResponse.GetCommand();

Get results by date range

// Gets the processes running on the local computer by date range, in custom collection.
var getProcessResponse = PShell.GetProcess("svchost", "w3wp").WhereObject(c => c.StartTime > DateTime.Now.AddDays(-7) && c.StartTime < DateTime.Now.AddDays(-1)).SelectObject(x => new { x.Name, x.Id, x.StartTime, x.PM, x.WS, x.VM, x.CPU, x.Handles }).ConvertToJson();            
// Get Command
string command = getProcessResponse.GetCommand();

Run command

// Get-Process
ActionResult<GetProcessResponse> resultGetProcess = getProcessResponse.Execute();

if (resultGetProcess.IB_Exception)
    System.Console.WriteLine("Error: {0}",resultGetProcess.Message);            
else 
{
    foreach (var process in resultGetProcess.List)
    {
        System.Console.WriteLine("ID: {0}, Name: {1}, StartTime: {2}, CPU: {3}", process.Id, process.Name, process.StartTime.ToString(PShellSettings.DateFormat), process.CPU);
    }
}

Stop Process (-Force) by date range

// Parameters
DateTime[] dateTimes = new DateTime[] { DateTime.Now.AddDays(-7), DateTime.Now.AddDays(-1) };

// Stop Process (-Force) by date range.
var stopProcessResponse = PShell.GetProcess("w3wp").WhereObject(c => c.StartTime > dateTimes[0] && c.StartTime < dateTimes[1]).StopProcessForce();

// Get Command
string command = stopProcessResponse.GetCommand();

// Execute command
ActionResult<GetProcessResponse> resultStopProcess = stopProcessResponse.Execute();

if (resultStopProcess.IB_Exception)
    System.Console.WriteLine("Error: {0}", resultStopProcess.Message);
else
{
    System.Console.WriteLine("Successful process");
}
