I would like to appeal the closing of this question. Frankly I was surprised that it was closed as off-topic; I have asked and answered many PowerShell questions in a similar vein.

As I really want to find an answer and am not sure where to look in the docs, my first step was to add a comment directly to the question to solicit input on why it was off-topic but, alas, no takers there. So you, good people of Meta, are my last, best hope. How have I transgressed with my question? How can I change the character of it to make it acceptable? (Or, if you just happen to know the answer to my question, that's fine, too!)

Looks like you may want to bounty that one. –  Lance Roberts Mar 21 '13 at 23:27

How have I transgressed with my question?

You have not.

Frankly I was surprised that it was closed as off-topic; I have asked and answered many PowerShell questions in a similar vein.

I'm surprised, too. This looks sufficiently related to a programming/scripting context that it would fit on our site (whereas PowerShell questions mainly about end-user usage would probably be a better fit elsewhere). I've reopened it as it is.
