Can I run a PowerShell script on a XP Pro computer with out installing any additional software to make the script run? The XP Pro computer does not have powershell installed. I want to be able to run a powershell script on many computers on my network and I don't want to install any software to make it run. Note: like running a dos script. Can this be done using the PowerShell language? Can this be done with PowerShell using a different language i.e. VBasic?

Thank you,
DSterling

You need .NET 2.0 and Powershell and it will run on the XP machine Locally, but with Powershell, as you learn it, you will find that you do not need to run scripts locally anymore. I manage 500+ servers with Powershell only installed on a couple. Most of my scripts run from one management box.

What is your scripting goal?

Here is the download

I primarily want to use it for admin and mostly remote admin in a Server 2003 and XP Pro environment.
Do you know any good Sites for scripts ?
