Enabling Poweshell ISE for Windows Server 2008 R2

Working with Powershell scripts the last few weeks, I have discovered that the Powershell ISE (Integrated Scripting Environment) isn’t installed by default on many servers. This can easily be added, either by “Add Feature” or by powershell itself. As  old-fashion, hard-core developer, I’m using the command shell 🙂

  1. Open Powershell command shell
  2. Execute following cmdlets.
Import-Module ServerManager 
Add-WindowsFeature PowerShell-ISE
