§ Works with both “appcmd <object> <verb>” and “appcmd <verb> <object>” command styles.
§ Shows list of objects and verbs available. Builds auto complete list dynamically so that you see only few options.
§ Builds list of current application pools, sites, applications, virtual directories, backups, module, traces, worker processes and shows them as parameter values. Updates this list when “appcmd add/delete” commands are used.
§ Force update option for tool to pick latest configuration data when “appcmd set config” or other scripts/tools are used to add/delete apppools/sites/apps/vdirs.
§ Parses the schema and shows section names in commands which require section names. Custom defined sections are automatically picked.
§ When working with a particular section, shows list of attributes/elements/collections and helps you setting attributes and adding/removing collection elements.
§ Shows attributes, elements, collections in you can set using “appcmd set <apppool|site|app|vdir|module” commands.
§ Shows general appcmd parameters. Uses –parameter for general parameters rather than /parameter to show they are different.
§ Shows possible attributes when “appcmd –text:” used.
§ Can execute command and see the output in the same window.
§ Shows examples of commands you are working with which are in “appcmd <verb> <object> /?” help.
