currently I am trying to install software using Windows Package Management from a local repository. Right now I am using the nuget provider to get the package. My problem is, that I want to execute a script after the
I found several answers that are directing to a
init.ps1file in a tools folder of the nuget package, but I thing this is related to Visual Studio nuget packages.
How do I start a PowerShell script automatically after the Install-Package command running via PowerShell?
Yes, you are correct! You would need to use init.ps1 or install.ps1 if you’re using NuGet as a Provider. Unfortunately install.sp1 is no longer supported in Visual Studio 2017.
If the package in question, is not available in NuGet then you might want to use a different provider.
You can take a look at the PackageManagement cmdlets
You would have to manage the providers and sources depending upon the available packages.
If you want to create your own local repository: Creating Local NuGet Repository
To call a Powershell script after Install-Package command, create a file called as install.ps1 and add the below code:
Install-Package -Name 7Zip4Powershell <Your stuff, for e.g;> Get-ChildItem Get-Hotfix
To run the script:
powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File install.ps1
If you have a code apart from Install-Package in a different ps1 file, then you can call the script:
Install-Package -Name 7zip4powershell .\MyCode.ps1
Check out this link: Running PowerShell scripts during NuGet package installation and removal
Lastly, if you really want to see whats the code inside
Install-Package, check out: Disassemble Powershell cmdlet
Hope this helps!
