Downloading Solutions from Central Administration

Posted within Administration on

This is a handy little PowerShell snippet that I needed to use today. There were two .WSP solutions installed within the SharePoint farm and I couldn’t locate the original source code.

$farm = Get-SPFarm
$solution = $farm.Solutions.Item("MySharePointSolution.wsp").SolutionFile
$solution.SaveAs("C:\MySharePointSolution.wsp")
