Powershell 2.2 for WFA2.1RC1


One of the prerequisite for WFA2.1RC1 is to install Powershell 2.2.0.

Could someone please post the link to download, installation instructions and how to verify that PS 2.2.0 is installed (Windows 2008 R2).

There is PS 2.2.1 also available.  Would it be advisable to install 2.2.1 ?





          The prerequisite for WFA 2.1RC1 is Powershell version 2.0 which comes built-in with windows 2008 server R2. So no need to install anything.

Where did you read that the requirement is for powershell 2.2.0? Is WFA2.1 RC documents telling this?

There is also Powershell 3.0 available which is compatible with windows server 2008 R2 and also with WFA.

If you want to upgrade it to this version, I can provide you the required links and steps to do it.

warm regards,

If you are using W2k8, chances are that the "Windows PowerShell" feature is not enabled, see for instructions how to enable it.


Abhishek and Yakobi,

Thanks for quick response! If it requires PowerShell 2.0 then I'm all set.

I found PS 2.2 requirement on page # 8 on Installation and Setup Guide for WFA 2.1 RC1
