PowerShell Script for Find In Files

A co-worker gave me this Windows PowerShell script that I used to find files that contained a certain value…because the Windows Search Companion stinks!

gci -include *.txt *.* |? { $n = $_.FullName; $t = $false; gc $_ |% {$t = $t -or $_.Contains(“stringtofind”)}; if($t) {$n} }

Seems to do the trick!

Thanks Jason Turnage!!! 🙂


Failed to create a CLSID_BizTalkPropertyBagFactory

Was getting this message, “Failed to create a CLSID_BizTalkPropertyBagFactory” when trying to refresh the Group Overview screen in the BizTalk 2006 Administration Console.

What was the answer? Restart the Windows Management Instrumentation service.

Thanks to Michael Stephenson’s blog for the answer…
