Update PowerShell V1 to V2 – Windows Management Framework:

This article describes the Windows Management Framework on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008. The Windows Management Framework includes the following:

  • Windows Remote Management (WinRM) 2.0
  • Windows PowerShell 2.0
  • Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) 4.0

Here’s where to get it:


Note: Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 already have Windows PowerShell v2 installed.  Also, there’s no need to install PowerShell V1 or to remove it if is already installed.   PowerShell V1 will be replace with V2.

PS.  Although is not in the list, for everyone using Windows Home Server, you must select PowerShell V2 for Windows Server 2003 and make sure all service packs are current.  For more information on installing PowerShell V2 on WHS click here:
