Has anyone else seen output display out of order in PowerShell 5?
C:\Users> Write-Host "Before"; Get-Service e* | select Status, Name, DisplayName; Write-Host "After" Before After Status Name DisplayName ------ ---- ----------- Stopped EapHost Extensible Authentication Protocol Running EFS Encrypting File System (EFS) Running eventlog Windows Event Log Running EventSystem COM+ Event System
We noticed this after we upgraded to WMF5. It isn’t causing any functional problems per se, but it can definitely confuse some people; scripts that uses Write-Host, Write-Verbose etc. to track the flow of the code could produce some surprising results.
I created a UserVoice bug report with more details (please upvote if you think this needs attention): Bug: Console output appears out of order
