Now our Visual Studio is cooking with Power! The PowerGUI Visual Studio PowerShell extension that is…

Poshoholic - PowerGUI Visual Studio is now in beta!

“Due to popular demand, Adam Driscoll has just released Beta 1 of his PowerGUI Visual Studio (aka PowerGUI VSX) project!

If you missed my blog about this last week and don’t know what this product is, it’s an extension for Visual Studio that adds PowerGUI’s editor with Intellisense, syntax highlighting and snippets for PowerShell script files to Visual Studio!  This can make it much easier to create PowerShell scripts or modules if you’re already working inside Visual Studio.

You can learn all about this great project and download the beta release by going to the PowerGUI VSX page on CodePlex now!

This project requires that the following prerequisites be installed first:
