Update of PS2EXE: Version 0.4 now support Single and Multi Thread Apartment and “NoConsole” mode

On Codeplex user redpark asked for “Single Thread Apartment” mode (http://ps2exe.codeplex.com/discussions/435946)…

Here it is…

Please see v0.4 on CodePlex:



There are 3 new parameters:

-sta Single Thread Apartment mode

(see http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.stathreadattribute(VS.71).aspx)

-mta Multithread Apartment mode

(see http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.mtathreadattribute(VS.71).aspx)

-noconsole resulting EXE is an Windows application not a console application.


The –noconsole parameter lets you create a Windows application EXE file with no console window.

Therefore I would need to implement several extensions for the PowerShell host included in the resulting EXE but currently I have not enough time to do this. But for now I’ve implemented the credential prompt so cmdlet Get-Credential will work as expected.

  1. i would love to try it out, current version give’s me an error.
    When will Powershell V5 Support be added?

  2. I used your script to covert my script in exe. my script is GUI based tool. when I run my script in Powershell ISE the form is showing correctly. But when I run the exe created Form is covering full screen and some of the contents are missing.

    Please suggest.
