  • It just doesn't work

    • when I execute it I just have:
      At C:\Users\FrancescoM\Desktop\check.ps1:21 char:33
      +     if($ping.StatusCode -eq 0){$pcip=$ping.ProtocolAddress; Ge ...
      +                                 ~
      You must provide a value expression following the '-eq' operator.
      At C:\Users\FrancescoM\Desktop\check.ps1:21 char:33
      +     if($ping.StatusCode -eq 0){$pcip=$ping.ProtocolAddress; Ge ...
      +                                 ~

    • Hi, no matter what point I'm choosing script doesn't want to stop to show me asked info. I suppose Function "Pause" doesn't work properly. If I launch Function "Pause" I'm getting this:
      PS > Pause
      Press any key to continue...
      Exception calling "ReadKey" with "1" argument(s): "The method or operation is n
      ot implemented."
      At line:10 char:5
      +     $null = $Host.UI.RawUI.ReadKey("NoEcho,IncludeKeyDown")
      +     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
          + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException
          + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NotImplementedException
      PS > 
      So, can you help me with this issue?
      Thnx in advance
  • Monitor Serial Numbers - show only current?
    1 Posts | Last post December 12, 2013
    • Hi, this is a great script, thank you! When I use number 14 to get monitor serial numbers, it seems to display every monitor that was ever used on the PC. I guess the registry retains that info. Is it possible to make this script show only the monitor(s) that are currently in use, or can you tell me in what order they are being displayed? Meaning, are the most recent on the top or the bottom of the list that is displayed?

    • I'm new to scripting. How would you modify this to read a text file with a list of computer names and put results into a xls file?

    • Amazing work, such a multi-purpose function, one thing though: it lacks a support of Get-Credential which would be handy for folks who would want to use this in a workgroup Environment!
