Releasing Script Browser & Script Analyzer 1.3 Update

We are very grateful to the Windows PowerShell MVPs Kirk Munro and Laurent Dardenne for providing lots of great ideas to enhance the Script Browser & Script Analyzer in the past 3 weeks.   Today, we are releasing the 1.3 update thanks to their suggestions. The team is committed to making the apps useful. Your feedback is very important to us.

Download Script Browser & Script Analyzer 1.3 
(If you have already installed an earlier version of Script Browser & Script Analyzer, you will get an update notification when you launch Windows PowerShell ISE.)


1. Support Sub-Categories in Search Filters

You can select sub categories in the Filters now!  In the following example, I selected Windows Azure / Automation sub category to look for all Azure automation script samples.



2. Save the Search Filters.

If you have some filter combination that you would like to use very often, you can save the search.


After saving the search, you can easily revisit the search in Saved Filters.



3. Add the support of ‘PowerShell Workflow’ scripts in the Script Browser.



4. In Script Analyzer, switching the code tab will no longer trigger the script analysis automatically

This change is based on the following user feedback and the discussion with MVPs.


5. Other UI enhancements:

a) Reduce the height of search result in the search result list, so that user can see more search results on the screen.


b) Make it more obvious how to close the Filter option with the ‘Apply Filters’ button.



We sincerely suggest you give the new Script Browser & Script Analyzer a try (click here to download). If you love what you see in Script Browser & Script Analyzer, please recommend it to your friends and colleagues. If you encounter any problems or have any suggestions for us, please contact us at Your precious opinions and comments are more than welcome.

    Need to go through a corporate proxy server that requires authentication. If I select "Use Internet Explorer proxy setting" option under Network Settings, Script Browser finds the proxy, but doesn’t seem to respond with Windows credentials for NTLM authentication.
    I don’t want to use the "Custom proxy setting" option because the password is not masked in the password field and the credentials are stored in plain text in a configuration file on the local machine. This could be a very helpful tool for us, but can’t effectively
    utilize it if it won’t work with our corporate proxy. Any suggestions?

    In the filters, Exchange 2013 is missing from the list. Only Exchange 2003, 2007 and 2010 appear. Can Exchange 2013 be added?

  7. James M. says:

    Like Bryan, I need to be able to provide credentials to go through a corporate proxy. However, when entering the password, it’s visible in clear text. Additionally, it looks like the protocols it opts for are all not secure as well. Is there any resolution
    to this?
