Bolt should support the local transport on windows

In scope:
Refactor winrm transport to make powershell snippets and executable discovery reusable.
Run .ps tasks in powershell locally from ruby
Run other tasks based on the configured executables for the local transport

Just a +1 for this ticket.


As a newbie its nice to be able to play around with a utility locally before worrying about authentication/transport (in this case WinRM).  Getting started would be much easier with the ability to launch against the localhost.

+1 as this feature is needed to support workflows for Puppet Pipelines, where the app is deployed locally using Bolt

+1 on this too

Didn't correctly set transport features for Windows (tries to run shell features on Windows, not powershell).
