PS2EXE v0.2.0.0: Improvements: Platform switch (x64 or x86 or AnyCPU), new “EXE.config” file for “supported runtime”

(Original article: http://ikarstein.wordpress.com/2011/06/21/ps2exe-tool-for-converting-powershell-scripts-to-standalone-exe-files/)

I have implemented some new switches for PS2EXE:

-x86

This compiles the EXE to be run as 32 bit application also on 64 bit OS.

-x64

This compiles the EXE to be run as 64 bit application. Therefore an 64 bit OS ist necessary.

-runtime20

This creates an “.exe.config” file with this content:

<configuration>
   <startup>
      <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/>
   </startup>
</configuration>

Please read this article on MSDN http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/w4atty68.aspx

this may fix some errors that users reported to me.

    Hello,

    Thank you so much for creating this script. I will use this religiously! I have one question though. I’ve created a script using .NET forms. I ran ps2exe against it and it worked but when my script launches, it always launches a console window with it. Is there a way to hide this console window and just display the form in the script I created?

    This works but I’m trying not to put this into a batch file. The script I created is a very simple GUI we’re wanting to place on all users’ desktops. I would prefer no console window to pop up at all with no switch if that’s possible.

    Thanx for the script, its simply awsome. I am having trouble where if you create PS script with param to take multiple parameters and converting it to exe, the converted exe didnt accepts the parameters correctly. Is there a way to fix it ?

      Hi. I have the same situation. No parameters allowed, neither Param() or $args[]. Please help. Thanks in advance

    the -noconsole parameter seems to be ignored. i’ve made my exe and very pleased to have that functionality. a black console window shows for a second on executing the program and it would now be nice to avoid that. i’m using PS2EXE v0.2.0.0. please give detailed info about -noconsole

    Finally I could pass parameters using $args[] array. But $args[] is no global, at least when I convert PS1 to EXE. So I assign parameters from $args[] to variables in the main routine and then pass it to the functions. I could’nt pass $args as parameter to functions, maybe to my inexperience en PS
