- Command-line tools that are easy to learn and easy to use. These tools have standard naming conventions and common parameters. The tools also include simple tools to sort, to filter, and to format data and objects.
- Support for existing scripting languages, for existing command-line tools, and for multiple versions of Windows. These versions include Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008.
- Features that let users browse data stores as if they were file systems. These data stores include the registry and certificate stores.
- Standard utilities for managing Windows data in different stores and formats. These stores and formats include Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI), Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), COM objects, ActiveX Data Objects (ADO), HTML, and XML.
- Sophisticated expression parsing and manipulation of objects in the .NET Framework at the command line. This manipulation includes the pipelining of objects to help IT professionals work more efficiently and effectively.
- An extensible interface that enables independent software vendors and enterprise developers to build custom cmdlets. You can use custom cmdlets to meet unique application and system administration requirements.
