What is ADPR?

![Gitter](https://badges.gitter.im/Join Chat.svg)

AppDomainPoshRunner, or ADPS for short, is a library and executable for running PowerShell scripts in a separate appdomain. Its most common form is the standalone executable poshrunner.exe.

Usage examples

Included in the zip file is AppDomainPoshRunner.SecondAppDomain.ps1, so you can run these examples by unzipping the files, opening a command prompt, and cd-ing to the directory you unzipped the files to

REM run AppDomainPoshRunner.SecondAppDomain.ps1 and write output to the console
poshrunner -f AppDomainPoshRunner.SecondAppDomain.ps1
REM run AppDomainPoshRunner.SecondAppDomain.ps1 and write output to poshrunner.log
poshrunner -f AppDomainPoshRunner.SecondAppDomain.ps1 --log4netConfigType=File

Why use ADPR?

Here are some compelling features:

  • A script can have its own app.config separate from powershell.exe.config
  • All output is written to a custom implementation of log4Net.ILog. This means:
    • You can send script output to a log file instead of (or in addition to) the console.
    • You can have Write-Error write a message to the event log.
    • You can send script output to mongodb with Log4Mongo
    • Much much more

How do I download ADPR

The recommended way to install poshrunner.exe is the chocolatey package.

Since GitHub no longer allows downloads, I have created a sourceforge.net project for PoshRunner. Here is a direct link to the latest download.

What is the status of ADPR

ADPR is a little rough around the edges, but quite useable. Because ADPR implements PSHost, the following cmdlets will run:

Write-Verbose 'Verbose Message';
Write-Debug 'Debug Message';
Write-Host 'Host Message';
Write-Host -ForegroundColor green "Green Text"
Write-Warning 'Warning Message';
Write-Error 'Error Message'
