DiD you know : You can find the assembly that contains a particular cmdlet

POSH TIP: Find .Net assembly Name that implements a particular cmdlet

Use the Get-Command cmdlet along with the name of the target cmdlet for getting the implementing assembly like below..

(Get-Command -name Get-Process).DLL

Put the get-command along with name parameter within parenthesis and then use the ‘DLL’ property

The DLL property returns the assembly that actually contains the implementation of the cmdlet.

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.Net\assembly\GAC_MSIL\Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.Management\v4.0_3.0.0.0__31bf3856ad364e35
\Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.Management.dll
