Powershell, Generating Random Passwords

There are many ways to generate a random password, I prefer to use the command line where possible. This is how I do it.

I put the following into a .ps1 file and I call the script to generate me a password.

Add-Type -Assembly System.Web
return [Web.Security.Membership]::GeneratePassword(12,1)
