File Association Not Working in Windows 8.1

I think this happens with Windows 8.0 too, but I don't have a machine around to test it on. If you go into options and associate file types with PrimalScript the message says that the association worked fine, however the association is not actually made. Additionally if I right click a file and sele...

PrimalXML: Start Page above file

Small but annoying bug. To reproduce - PrimalXML is not yet running, and Start Page enabled. - Double click an XML file to open with Primal XML. The file opens in PrimalXML, but then the Start Page tab takes focus. If PrimalXML is already open, it sets the tab focus correctly. This behavior doesn't ...

Ribbon - Visual Text Upscaling on Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 does a beautiful job of scaling the resolution along with screen elements so that you have a high resolution without text being too tiny to see. It does this by default on higher resolution screens like 1080. I do not know what causes this, but some applications adapt to this just fine, ...

Primal Script 2012: A Decent Icon

The icon for PrimalScript 2012 looks horrible on the Windows 7 taskbar!I know this may seem trivial to some, but it bothers me a lot. Because of the white background of the icon, it appears like it's the "document icon" from Windows Explorer with an overlay. It kind of makes the program feel "cheap"...

Stupid Question? Cant execute method.

Ok i see now. I took my own liberties and it "seemed" like it was working....but I was just doing $xyz = "get service" and then running &$xyz spooler

I understand now how that is not the same thing.

Stupid Question? Cant execute method.

I kind of figured the "b" was a typo, but I didnt want to doubt someone who obviously knows 10x more than I. hehe very cool! I think i'm going to end up using this little trick many times! Is there any particular reason you used the {} around the code? I tried it with "quotes" and seems to work equa...

absolute beginner help please!!!!

And if you want to only have the filename in the text file (and not other file info): get-childitem -path <mypath> -recurse | where{$_.lastwritetime -gt "6/1/2008"} | format-table -property name > samplefile.txt Also, since you're learning, I recommend using full commands as much as possible so that...

Stupid Question? Cant execute method.

ahhh that is disheartening. I'm trying to do everything possible with "native" powershell stuff....just for the learning process. Then again I suppose learning what *can't* be done is just as good.

Stupid Question? Cant execute method.

I've just starting playing with Powershell again after several months of having no free time. Came across something I don't understand and I'm probably just missing something obvious. First I type: $a = get-service spooler Then I type: $a | get-member I see all the members of the spooler service inc...
