I am using PowerShell 2.0 since the release of SQL Server 2008 R2 for my SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 on a XP Pro SP3 and a Windows 7 Home Premium . But why the documentation is never warning that there are 2 versions pour PowerShell ? Why it is so complicated to find the V2..0 to download. These 2 versions are as different as chalk and cheese, a real pity...
I hope you will excuse my poor english ( and my old french -> English dictionary )
Please, could you update your article to give some links about the V2.0 version of Powershell ? ( it will be necessary for SQL Server 2012 if i have well understood its documentation )
The link to download PowerShell 2.0 is in my PowerShell Demo blog blogs.msdn.com/.../sql-powershell-demo-intro.aspx - support.microsoft.com/.../968929. You can also find the download location here: www.microsoft.com/.../search.aspx
