Set Global Variable with PowerShell?

All,

Is it possible to assign a global variable using powershell instead of the normal windows command line interpreter?

 

Example for a global variable to be set for command line for the date you need to use the following:

sendevent -E SET_GLOBAL -G "Today=%date:~4,2%-%date:~7,2%-%date:~10,4%

 

I'm wondering if it is possible to do a similar item with powershell to come up with a custom format date without all the command line items

 

E.g. sendevent -E SET_GLOBAL -G "Today" = powershell.exe Get-Date -f 'yyyyMMdd'

 

I realize the above syntax is incorrect, but demonstrating an example.  Basically using PowerShell's functionality to set global variables for dates and even other items.

 

Thanks in advance.
