How to install Powershell ISE

Do you want to design, develop and test powershell scripts on your Windows Server?

If you are running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 or Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2011 then you will not be able to “right click” and select “Edit” you can however choose to run the script.

You need the Powershell Integrated Scripting Environment to be able to easily create, edit and debug your powershell scripts.

To install it just open Powershell, usually it is best to do this by “right clicking” your Powershell shortcut and clicking “Run as administrator”.  Once Powershell is open simply paste in the following text and then click “Enter” to start the install process


Import-Module ServerManager;Add-WindowsFeature PowerShell-ISE


You should now see “Powershell ISE” under Start Menu, Accessories and Windows Powershell.
