Installing and updating Windows PowerShell – via Microsoft Docs

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/11

Since I keep forgetting that PowerShell is part of WMF (Windows Management Framework) and about the compatibility/installation matrix: [WayBack] Installing Windows PowerShell | Microsoft Docs:

The installation package for PowerShell comes inside a WMF installer. The version of the WMF installer matches the version of PowerShell; there’s no stand alone installer for Windows PowerShell.

If you need to update your existing version of PowerShell, in Windows, use the following table to locate the installer for the version of PowerShell you want to update to.

Windows PS 3.0 PS 4.0 PS 5.0 PS 5.1
Windows 10 (see Note1)
Windows Server 2016
Windows 8.1
Windows Server 2012 R2
installed [WayBack] WMF 5.0 [WayBack] WMF 5.1
Windows 8
Windows Server 2012
installed [WayBack] WMF 4.0  [WayBack] WMF 5.0 [WayBack] WMF 5.1
Windows 7 SP1
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
[WayBack] WMF 3.0 [WayBack] WMF 4.0 [WayBack] WMF 5.0 [WayBack] WMF 5.1

To upgrade to WMF 5.0 from 4.0 you need to install .net 4.5 or later on your machine first. Then install WMF 5.0 RTM.
