What is the PowerShell Module Installer?

The PowerShell Module installer is a PowerShell module which can create self-contained installers for PowerShell modules. These installers are themselves PowerShell scripts (.ps1) which contain all files of the module in compressed and encoded format. When the installer script runs it extracts all packaged files into a PowerShell module folder.

Feature Summary

  • Packages all files described in a PowerShell module manifest (psd1)
  • Optionally includes a License Agreement (displayed at Installation time)
  • Optionally signs all files in the module as well as the installer script.
