Dell PowerShell Provider Install w/ ConfigMgr

I just created an App for the Dell PowerShell Provider 1.3.0, was able to learn what I needed from Mike’s Blog (THANK YOU). I thought I’d add a cmd file install for 1.3.0 and do a more graphical walk through (I’m a visual guy).

To get the download, go HERE (

Download, grab the DellBIOSProvider folder

Copy that to your Source (\\CMSRC\SRC$\Apps\Dell\DellPowerShellProvider\1.3.0\x64)

Install: “Load_DellPowerShellProviders-x64.cmd”

REM Remove old Folder before copying the new version into place (If there is an old version)
if exist "%PROGRAMFILES%\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\DellBIOSProvider" rd "%PROGRAMFILES%\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\DellBIOSProvider" /S /Q

set loc=%~dp0

REM Copy the Module to the Modules folder
xcopy "%loc%DellBIOSProvider" "%PROGRAMFILES%\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\DellBIOSProvider" /s /i

Uninstall: cmd.exe /c rd “%programfiles%\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\DellBIOSProvider” /S /Q


Detection Method:
File Path: %PROGRAMFILES%\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\DellBIOSProvider
File Name: DellBIOSProvider.dll

Requirements: (x64 & Dell) – See previous post on creating Dell Requirement

Once Installed, you can test by launching PowerShell and loading the Module

import-module DellBIOSProvider


I highly recommend reading Mike’s Blog Post from last year when he blogged the install of version 1.1, he goes into additional detail and background.
