Microsoft just announced the Windows Management Framework 5.0 Preview. The Windows Management Framework V5 preview adds some cool new feature called OneGet.
- Manage a list of software repositories in which packages can be searched, acquired, and installed
- Search and filter your repositories to find the packages you need
- Seamlessly install and uninstall packages from one or more repositories with a single PowerShell command
As I did some tests this is perfect to install new software packages very easily. So I started with one of my favorite tools called Sysinternals Suite.
First I have check if there was a Sys internals Package available by using:
This checks online from different sources if there is a package available. After that I installed the package by using:
Find-Package Sysinternals | Install-Package
So this is really easy and guess what, it does not just work for Microsoft Software, there is a lot more of third party Software which can be installed with OneGet. So make sure you checkout the Windows Management Framework 5.0 Preview to get the new OneGet cmdlets.
