Windows 7: Trying to use powershell to make maintenance easy.

Trying to use powershell to make maintenance easy.

I need to do maintenance on a bunch of computers and perhaps upgrade some, rather the physically touching them all I would like to use WMI and Powershell to get the information about these computers and output it to a .CSV file. Can anyone point me in the right direction? All of my computers currently are on windows 7 ultimate and professional and they are all currently on the same domain.

I'm not versed in PowerShell. But this site looks like it might have some value:

Also you can make WMI calls from scripting languages AutoIt and AutoHotkey. They might be easier to start with while you are getting acclimated to PS syntax.

both have forums where you can ask for help.

Thanks, I didn't even think to see if there was a website dedicated to powershell, I googled it and that site didn't show up. I also looked on stack overflow and didn't see anything. I will check these sources and document how I do it here.

This sounds like a dumb question, but here's the background. My daughter's XP laptop crashed (trashed hard disk that I doubt we can rescue much data from) and so we got her a Windows 7 computer. Unless we can rescue much of the old data from crashed XP, she's pretty much starting off empty. ...
