  • The output is not very helpful:

    PS > get-printerport
    get-printerport : The term 'get-printerport' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or
    operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try
    again.
    At line:1 char:1
    + get-printerport
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (get-printerport:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

  • @glauber, Get-PrinterPort is a ver 3.0+ cmdlet.

  • And only Windows 8+.
