How to Run Jobs or Commands in Parallel using PowerShell

Well I don’t care much for PowerShell, but sometimes it is a necessary evil. I needed to run some PowerShell scripts in parallel, so I wrote a wrapper to do this. Maybe it will help you also.


  • You specify how many jobs to run in parallel
  • When one job finishes, another will be started

Note: the Start-Job commandlet takes a few seconds to do its thing.
