If you have ever needed to call an exe application from PowerShell and needed to pass multiple parameters to the exe then the technique I outline here will really help you out.
Declare a variable that holds the executable name as a string and any other variables you might want to use
$pfm = “pfm”
$MountPath = “T:”
As a side note the application I am calling is Pismo File Mount which is by far the best free (even for commercial use) software I have ever used for mounting ISOs
Declare all your parameters as an object array
$Mount = “mount”,”-m”,”$MountPath”
Now in your code you can do the following
& $pfm $Mount “$MSDNIsoPath\en_visual_studio_2010_premium_rc_x86_dvd_489527.iso”
If I wanted to write out all my parameters every time I could always write in PowerShell:
Pfm mount -m “$MountPath” “$MSDNIsoPath\en_visual_studio_2010_premium_rc_x86_dvd_489527.iso”
I can’t say as I have figured out why this works this way and if anyone has an explanation I would love to hear it in the comments.
