Quick Post – Get Cmdlet Related DLL


In some situation you are running a cmdlet, but you have no idea where it is stored. I mean you don’t know to which “*.dll” it belongs to or maybe you want to know some more details about the command.

A very easy way to figure this out for the Get-AzureRmResource cmdlet…

(Get-Command Get-AzureRmResource).DLL


…as you can see the output will be the path to the “Microsoft.Azure.Commands.ResourceManager.Cmdlets.dll”. Of course you could run this command with any other cmdlet.

If you want to see other interesting details just run…

Get-Command Get-AzureRmResource | Select *


Finding the related DLL was quite useful for me in the past, so I though it might help you as well.
