With the release of Windows Server 2008, the Server Core installation option was introduced. This new option made it possible to run only the base operating system along with a minimum of optional features and roles. Consequently, Server Core has become quite successful as a network services host OS. Windows Server 2008 R2 introduces further enhancements that enable Server Core to also be leveraged as an Application host OS. There are unique considerations to be aware of when developing applications intended to run on a Server Core installation of Windows Server 2008 R2. If you are a native-code developer (using primarily C/C++), you need to be sure that the machine in which the application will run has the necessary runtimes. Likewise, if you are a managed-code developer (using primarily C#/VB.NET), then you must be certain that the target machine has the required .NET Framework installed. For both, managed and unmanaged developers, it is also imperative to have the WoW64 execution layer if you will be using executable binaries that are 32-bit (with R2, Windows Server is now 64-bit only). In this segment, you will learn how to install various requirements that your applications may need in order to successfully execute.

Windows PowerShell is a Windows command-line shell designed for ease-of-use not only by system administrators but also for application and system developers. The shell includes an interactive prompt and a scripting environment that can be used independently or in combination. PowerShell V2 is available by default with both R2 and Windows 7 and, via an optional update, previous versions of Windows. For Developers specifically, Windows PowerShell in combination with the Windows Management Infrastructure (WinRM, WS-Management, WMI) provides a great way to automate server hosted solutions. For example, if you implement all your administration logic via PowerShell, then layer the MMC GUI over the top (i.e. MMC calls PowerShell to get the work done) - you will have given your Enterprise customers the absolute best of all worlds; GUIs, scripting, and delegated, remote automation. Unlike most scripting shells, which accept and return text, Windows PowerShell is integrated with the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) and the .NET Framework, and thus deals in .NET objects instead of just text strings. This fundamental change in the environment brings entirely new tools and methods to the management and configuration of Windows. Application Developers may extend their solutions with custom PowerShell based object models which integrate seamlessly with platform management solutions. Like many shells, Windows PowerShell gives you access to the file system on the computer. In addition, Windows PowerShell providers enable you to access other data stores, such as the registry and the digital signature certificate stores, as easily as you access the file system. Version 2 of Windows Powershell introduces an array of new features including remote sessions, an integrated script environment, debugging tools, and much more.
