WINDOWS POWERSHELL (INSTALLATION / CONFIGURATION)




Description: Windows PowerShell 1.0 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista is available via the PowerShell 1.0 setup package.  Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 include PowerShell with the Operating System.  Windows Server 2008 includes PowerShell 1.0 and Windows 7 includes PowerShell 2.0.



Scoping the Issue: The list below outlines the different download locations for Windows PowerShell 1.0:



On Windows Server 2008, you can enable PowerShell via Server Manager under Features, Add Features, Windows PowerShell.


Note: PowerShell requires the installation of .NET Framework v2.0.


Data Gathering: In all instances, collecting either MPS Reports with the General, Internet and Networking, Business Networks and Server Components diagnostics, or a Performance-oriented MSDT manifest must be done.  PowerShell records any errors to the Event Logs with an Event Source of PowerShell.



Troubleshooting / Resolution: PowerShell installs itself in the following folder location(s):



  • x86-based versions of PowerShell 1.0: %windir%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\V1.0

  • x64-based versions of PowerShell 1.0:

    • %windir%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\V1.0

    • %windir%\syswow64\WindowsPowerShell\V1.0

Registry information regarding PowerShell is stored in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PowerShell
