Sysinternals Tools – Keeping up to date with PowerShell

Shay  Levy’s written a very cool PowerShell function called Get-Sysinternals.ps1. This script looks at the versions of Sysinternals tools on your system (by default in a folder c:\sysint) and downloads any updated versions.

This script is cool on a couple of levels. First, it ensures you have all the newest versions of these powerful tools. But also, it uses PowerShell!

I’ve just run it for the first time and the script downloaded all the tools. When I run it again tomorrow, anything new will get downloaded. Maybe it’s time for a Cron job – run the script once a week to keep my local collection up to date.
