    Hi,

    I am an App-V trainer that is drawn to Powershell since AppV 5.x
    I am searching for a tool that enables me to use Powershell commands on a demo machine in some sort of GUI which will allow me to press a key to advance to the next Powershell command in a Powershell script.
    I want to use it in a demo to administer App-V 5.x with Powershell.

    I want to highlight a few AppV Powershell cmdlets. The New-AppVSequencerPackage for example to show sequence automation.
    Now I just enter all the lines in an elevated command prompt, but I am convinced there is a better and nicer way to show this to students.

    According to Jeff Wouters a tool like this exists but he couldn't come up with the name and advised me to post here.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Alex,

    Yes. The PowerShell module you're looking for is the famous Start-Demo and the latest versions support the ISE as GUI.

    I hope that helps.

    Best,

    I think this will do what I was searching for. First I have to get it to work.
    Getting a lot of "red text". 🙂

    Thanks for your reply.

    Thanks again Daniel.

    By combining the Start-Demo functions from the URL's you posted with the one I found on http://www.maxtblog.com/2012/02/powershell-start-demo-now-allows-multi-lines-onliners/ I was able to produce a working demo.
