Hi guys, i hope you are all well and can help.
Id like to start using powershell in our build process for Windows 7.
Is there a way to "activate" or run powershell scripts during the build process of Windows 7 in the winpe environment?
Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi,

As far as my understanding goes the standard Win PE does not have dot net support available and hence running powershell scripts without dot net might not be possible. (There might be ways to customize the PE Environment to support dot net / powershell).

I found this link which describes a tool for creating a portable powershell
(http://www.powershellcommunity.org/Default.aspx?tabid=55&EntryID=97)

Portable PowerShell is software that allows you to run PowerShell on machines that don’t have PowerShell installed that you can run from a Machine that doesn’t have PowerShell on it, from a USB stick, on a machine that has a different version of PowerShell, a preinstall environment like BartPE, or WinPE or when booted to a windows 7 recovery DVD.
