Hi Everyone,

I am trying to output the process command line and date but the date format is in US, although running get-culture returns UK status.  There are two things I need to knowm, how I can change the date format to dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss and to format the output to a readable table format. here is the script I have put to gether :

$a =  gwmi win32_process -computername localhost

$a | foreach-object{ $_.Name + " " + $_.commandline + " " + $_.ConvertToDateTime( $_.CreationDate )}

If you want to be able to display it in a table format, you really need to keep the output as objects with their properties.  If you just output everything as strings then it's much less flexible, and will be subject to formatting problems due to the variable length of the information you want to output.  Using Select-Object and calculated properties is a good choice here.

I'm a little curious why you chose a WMI query to retrieve process information here instead of Get-Process.  It adds a little complexity to converting the datetime info.  But here's a method to get it in your desired format.
$a | Select Name,commandline,@{n="CreationDate";e={$_.ConvertToDateTime($_.CreationDate).ToString("dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:ss")}}
