Powershell 2.0 download

« Where is the Powershell 2.0 download ? »

Don’t ask me why, but the official release of PowerShell 2.0 is not available in a standalone download. It is now part of the «Window Management Framework».

The framework includes :

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

It is available for Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista and Windows 2008 (already included with Windows 7 and 2008 R2).

You will find all the download links and infos at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968929/en-us

Note : Don’t forget, PowerShell shortcuts are in Programs/Accessories/Windows PowerShell
