The powerVault commandlet 'Get-VaultFileBom' is crashing on your machine or not behaving correctly and our product support asked you to export the BOM(Bill of Material) of the file.


You can use the attached BomExtractor script to export the Vault BOM of the file that is causing issues and all its dependencies in a ZIP file. You can then submit the file to our support via email ( for further analysis.

Using the script:

To use this script powerVault must be installed.

  1. Insert the required information at the top of the script
  2. Execute the script.
  3. You will be asked to specify an output folder. 
  4. Press the 'OK' button 

The script will start to export the BOM files. 

Currently the script does not show a progress indicator and exporting BOMs of big assemblies can take quite a while. Once it has collected all required files, it will save them to the output directory as a .ZIP file. The name of the file consists of the original vault file name and ''


The tool uses the directory 'C:\BOMExtractor\to store the extracted BOM files temporarily this folder should not be touched during operation, the tool will remove the directory after the export.
