Install-SPWebPartPack [-LiteralPath] <String> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-GlobalInstall <SwitchParameter>] [-Language <UInt32>] [-WebApplication <SPWebApplicationPipeBind>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]
Install-SPWebPartPack [-Name] <String> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-GlobalInstall <SwitchParameter>] [-Language <UInt32>] [-WebApplication <SPWebApplicationPipeBind>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This cmdlet contains more than one parameter set. You may only use parameters from one parameter set, and you may not combine parameters from different parameter sets. For more information about how to use parameter sets, see Cmdlet Parameter Sets.

The Install-SPWebPartPack cmdlet installs the Web Part package, at the LiteralPath parameter location, in the local farm. The Web Part package can be installed in a specific Web application by using the WebApplication parameter. If a Web application is not specified, the Web Part package is installed in all Web applications.

Use the Language parameter to specify a package language.

Use the GlobalInstall parameter to install the package to the global assembly cache (GAC). Assemblies in the GAC are granted FullTrust permission, which gives this package full access to all system-wide resources.

Use the Force parameter to install the package to overwrite any existing Web Part package with the same name or installed in the same location.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

LiteralPath

Required

System.String

Specifies the exact path to the Web Part package.

Name

Required

System.String

Specifies the name of the Web Part package to install.

AssignmentCollection

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPAssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

noteNote
When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Overwrites any existing Web Part package with the same name or installed in the same location.

GlobalInstall

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Installs the Web Part package in the global assembly cache (GAC) rather than in the /bin directory of each Web application. This installation makes the Web Part globally accessible on the servers.

Language

Optional

System.UInt32

Specifies the language ID for the Web Part package.

WebApplication

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPWebApplicationPipeBind

Specifies the Web application on which to install the Web Part pack. If no Web application is specified, the Web Part pack is installed on all Web applications.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Displays a message that describes the effect of the command instead of executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

------------------EXAMPLE------------------

Install-SPWebPartPack "MyCustomWebPartPack" -LiteralPath "c:/mywebpart.wpp" -GlobalInstall

This example installs the Web Part Package with the name MyCustomWebPartPack globally in the farm from the path c:/mywebpart.wpp.
