The PowerGUI Visual Studio PowerShell extension is now officially a v1 (RTW/RTM, Released, Stable, etc, etc)

Shared Points for SharePoint - PowerGUI Visual Studio Extension is out of beta


But as the title indicates the focus of this posting will be on the newly released PowerGUI Visual Studio Extension. PowerGUI Visual Studio Extension is an integration of the PowerGUI Script Editor into Visual Studio. In my opinion this is a very good idea because it brings PowerShell development into a familiar environment, as we can now maintain the scripts in Visual Studio projects. Additionally we get version control integration “for free.”

I obtain an error when using the PowerGUI extension the first time I open it after installation.
The error is due to not founded dll in C:\Program Files (x86)\blah...
I use VS 2010 on 64 bits OS
Do you provide a 64 bits version of this extension ?

The best bet would be to post your issue in the project's discussion area, http://powerguivsx.codeplex.com/discussions

Be sure to post what version of PowerGUI you're using (which is different than the extension... the Extension relies on/uses PowerGUI from http://powergui.org), the error, OS, etc.
