Get-ItemProperty - Powershell 1.0 CmdLet
Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.
More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.
Description Retrieve the properties of an object Usage Options -path string The path(s) to the items. Wildcards are permitted. -literalPath string Like Path above, only the value is used exactly as typed. No characters are interpreted as wildcards. If the path includes any escape characters then enclose the path in single quotation marks. -name string The name(s) of the property to retrieve. -include string Include only the specified items from the Path. e.g. "May*" this only works when the path includes a wildcard character. -exclude string Omit the specified items from the Path e.g. "*SS64*" this only works when the path includes a wildcard character. -filter string A filter in the provider's format or language. The exact syntax of the filter (wildcard support etc) depends on the provider. Filters are more efficient than -include/-exclude, because the provider applies the filter when retrieving the objects, rather than having PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved. -credential PSCredential Use a credential to validate access to the file. Credential represents a user-name, such as "User01" or "Domain01\User01", or a PSCredential object, such as the one retrieved by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. If you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password. CommonParameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutVariable. Example(s) Display information about the C:\Windows directory: PS C:\>get-itemproperty C:\Windows Get a file and display as a list: PS C:\>get-itemproperty C:\Test\Weather.xls | format-list Display the value name and data of each of the registry entries contained in the .NetFramework registry subkey: PS C:\>get-itemproperty -path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework You can also specify the full registry path: (the HKLM shortcut is a psdrive) PS C:\>get-itemproperty -path Registry::HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ Display the value name and data of a specific registry entry: PS C:\>get-itemproperty -path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework -name "InstallRoot"
