Download Links for PowerGUI and QAD cmdlets

powergui logoWith Dell’s acquisition of Quest and all the IT reorganization that followed, it is actually not that easy to find these two popular free PowerShell tools any longer. So here are the links that work today (January 30, 2015):

PowerGUI

The download is freely available from Dell’s PowerGUI community.

The community itself also got moved from http://powergui.org to http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/powergui.

Dell Software is still maintaining the product – as I am writing this the latest version is 3.8 released in April 2014.

Quest / QAD cmdlets

This one is a little more tricky to find: https://software.dell.com/register/71110

If this link for some reason changes, all Dell’s freeware and trial links can be found in this catalog: http://software.dell.com/trials/

Happy PowerShelling!

    Thanks, I couldn’t find the Quest download today.

    I love PowerGUI, I think that it is better than any alternative that I have tried. I am just very concerned that nothing has changed since Dell has purchased them. Worse, all of the addons that were available are no longer, nobody from Dell/Quest are on the forums. I hope that the development has not ceased, if they decide to call it a day, I hope that they open-source it.

      Mark,

      RE: “all of the addons that were available are no longer”

      Are these the ones you were looking for: http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/powergui/m/powerpacks ?

      I did have “Dell-Sergey T” confirm a bug in December. It wasn’t particularly timely (I’d posted in October), but it did happen, and I’m appreciative.

      Somewhat painfully, however, the reply on the bug changed from, “Hi. Thanks for your feedback. It looks like a bug of the autocomplete. It’ll be fixed in next release,” to, “Hi. Thanks for your feedback. It looks like a bug of the autocomplete. I’ve confirmed it,” which both was and wasn’t horribly encouraging, if you get my meaning.

      PowerGUI remains my go to IDE of choice when I need to do step-by-step debugging, mainly because PowerShell ISE doesn’t realize when a file’s been edited elsewhere and PowerGUI does. But man, an update would be nice! Hope Dell helps make that happen soon.

    I guess this one bit the dust. No new development since April 2014.

    A quote from Thom Brainard, Product Marketing Manager, Dell Software: “At this time, development of PowerGUI is on hold.” (http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/powergui/f/4833/t/19628186).

    It’s from April 2015, and nothing seems to have happened in the meantime.

    any new link for QAD cmdlets

      Looks like the previous link to QAD cmdlets stopped working so I am not sure if there is such a page anymore. Will all that’s have been happening with Quest and Dell Software recently – maintaining community projects can be a challenge.😦
