What i did was a Enter-PSSession to start the remote session. I have found
that there are other ways to get this simular behavior.
For example if you try to run cmd.com or python.exe ( given that you have
python installed) In both cases I don't get a command prompt or a python
prompt. Both of these are console, non-gui programs
Svn as I said locks up the prompt waiting for input that I seem unable to
I did a different test. I made a simple C++ program
using namespace std;
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv)
in this case the program prints the "enter value:" part then returns to the
prompt. I don't know why svn locks up, but in either cases it seems that one
can't use a cli program that requires interactive input with powershell
