To use PowerShell-ISE (Integrated Scripting Environment) on a Windows 2008 R2 server it is necessary to first enable it. There are just a few simple steps to take to do this…
- Run PowerShell with Administrator privileges (right-click PowerShell -> Run as administrator).
- Import the Server Manager PowerShell module.
- Next, add the Powershell-ISE feature.
That’s all there is to it! The result from the last command shows that the feature was successfully installed and that no restart is required.
Now when you click through Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Windows PowerShell you will see both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of PowerShell-ISE available.
Hope this helps to save some time and frustation 🙂
