I am trying to get the date in this format

(get-date).AddMinutes(10).ToString("d.M.yyyy hh:mm tt")

Where tt should be AM or PM. But I guess tt is wrong to use here.

All help appreciated.

Hi,
you need to pass a culture info - otherwise it could happen that you do not get the AM/PM (like on my computer where I have german settings):
$enus = 'en-US' -as [Globalization.CultureInfo]
(get-date).AddMinutes(10).ToString("d.M.yyyy hh:mm tt", $enus)

Your Code is correct:

PS G:\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Scripts> (get-date).addminutes(10).tostring("d.M.yyyy hh:mm tt")
23.2.2014 01:03 PM
PS G:\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Scripts>

But not on my system, most likely because I am not using a system with US local settings. I tested Rainer Jeschor solution, and it seems to work by setting these settings manually in the script.

But thank you anyway =)
