MSDN blog: free Microsoft books giveaway #msftenable


 

Hi,

 

This has been circulating on various forums for a while. Some of the books, especially Windows 10 ones, should be something folks should read when they have time (for Edge users, this is a good opportunity to test PDF and Epub reading):

Cheers,

Joseph

Does anyone know how to get the text for the power shell script? The article says to save the icon to the right and this will give you the text for the powershell script. But that is not working...

If you're talking about the 2017 version of the giveaway, then clicking on the icon does work. I did not run the script, but the code looks pretty well put together. Right-clicking or pressing Applications on the icon and choosing "save (target) as" or something similar results in a text file named "Eligman_DownloadAll_PowerShell.txt."

Well, Its save link as... Not target. There are 3 icons listed so I just tried them... For anyone running the power shell script you have to change the directory in the script to an exsisting directory it wont work with the one provided.
change $dest = "c:\Downloads\etext\"
In my case to:
$dest = "D:\Downloads\"
