PSCX 3.1 Production Released
PSCX 3.1 is our primary release targeting PowerShell 3.0 and PowerShell 4.0. We've made the jump to .NET 4.0 and are using PowerShell 3.0 specific features. If you need PowerShell 2.0 support use PSCX 2.1 Production. PSCX 3.1 is deployed via a MSI file.
You can download PSCX 3.1 from
PSCX 2.1 Production Released
PSCX 2.1 addresses a number of defects found in the 2.0.0.x releases as well as adding support for Windows PowerShell 3.0. PSCX 2.1 is xcopy deployed via a ZIP file. Do not forget to unblock the ZIP file before extracting the contents. You can download PSCX
2.1 from http://pscx.codeplex.com/releases/view/96848
Both of these releases of PSCX support execution in an "AllSigned" execution policy environment. We were also able to obtain an extended validation code signing certificate to allow the PSCX 3.0 MSI file to play nicely with the Windows 8 SmartScreen
filter. We would like to thank the folks at DigiCert
for donating the required code signing certificates to this project. Not only did they donate the certs but were quite helpful in supporting me getting up and running
quickly - even when that meant talking to a support person at midnight. :-)
