Question:

Running PowerShell scripts without using Sitecore PowerShell Extensions module

Ryleigh: 19 May 2022

We are facing some issues with Lucene during installation of PowerShell Extensions module (SPE).

Is there any option to run Sitecore scripts from Windows PowerShell?

I mean that I will just add some route to PowerShell instance or make some config changes and it can be used similarly as web based PS extension?

Running Sitecore 8.2 Update 5 and tried to install SPE 4.7 for Sitecore 8.

Thanks for any advises.

There is an option of performing the minimal installation, which does not make use of Sitecore items.

You can find more details on the security page (https://doc.sitecorepowershell.com/security.html) in the book.

The Sitecore Marketplace has the minimal installation package, which is a standard zip file of configs and dlls that are dropped into your Sitecore bin/App_Config directories.
