Description

This cmdlet contains more than one parameter set. You may only use parameters from one parameter set, and you may not combine parameters from different parameter sets. For more information about how to use parameter sets, see Cmdlet Parameter Sets (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=187810).

The Install-SPWebPartPack cmdlet installs the Web Part package, at the LiteralPath parameter location, in the local farm. The Web Part package can be installed in a specific Web application by using the WebApplication parameter. If a Web application is not specified, the Web Part package is installed in all Web applications.

Use the Language parameter to specify a package language.

Use the GlobalInstall parameter to install the package to the global assembly cache (GAC). Assemblies in the GAC are granted FullTrust permission, which gives this package full access to all system-wide resources.

Use the Force parameter to install the package to overwrite any existing Web Part package with the same name or installed in the same location.

For permissions and the most current information about Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Products, see the online documentation at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=251831 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=251831).

Optional Parameters

-AssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.
