PowerShell 3.0

Hi all,

Yesterday, Microsoft released Windows Management Framework 3.0 (includes PowerShell v3) for downlevel systems such as Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. This is a must have for anyone remotely interested in using PowerShell.

  • Install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 from here
  • Uninstall any prerelease versions of WMF 3.0 (KB2506143 or KB2506146)
  • Install appropriate WMF 3.0 package from here

Why bother?  A few highlights:

If you haven’t already, pick up PowerShell v3 now and give it a go!  If you are running Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012, you are already using PowerShell v3.

On a side note, Microsoft released Windows Server 2012 to Technet, MSDN, and for general availability yesterday.  No word on availability through DreamSpark.
