I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, there are no issues using those FREE tools, both are supported. RVtools is a third party tool.

Scripting is designed to be done via PowerCLI (PowerGUI is not obsolete).
