Hi,

I would like to display a message in PowerShell and append the message to a log file.   In PowerShell 4.0 you can use Tee-Object -Append but I don't think they have the -Append option in PowerShell 2.0.    Is there an simple way to write a message to the screen and log file at the same time?   Thank you.

David

PS UnfortunatelyI can't upgrade to PowerShell 4.0.

What about using Add-Content with -PassThru switch? for example..
"Some data" | Add-Content c:\temp\log.txt -PassThru

Open in new window
