After releasing RC1, internal testing discovered two issues that we feel warrant an update to our RC1:

  • One issue affects the digital signature verification on some file types (such as .msi, and .vbs.)  For the affected file types, signed files will appear to be unsigned, and the publisher will be listed as “unknown.”
  • A second issue prevents customers from installing Windows PowerShell on 64-bit machines running Windows Vista.

If you’ve already installed the release candidate, please uninstall it, reboot, and install the updated version.  The updated version is available on the Download Center, as before:

X86 Windows PowerShell latest build: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=64772&clcid=0x409

X64 Windows PowerShell latest build: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=64773&clcid=0x409 

This is sometimes the case with pre-release software, but we apologize for the inconvenience.  We've put processes in place to ensure that these issues won't happen again.

  • I was a bit surprised that I didn't get to see those listed issues being mentioned in "Windows PowerShell RC1 release notes"...
  • Thanks for fixing the URL link.  Finally the Windows platform has programming language that was is as powerful as the Mainframe has had for years on the VM/CMS platform "Pipelines".  Powershell is as powerfull as that language is and takes it to the next level with objects and acting on those objects and piping data along through the pipeline.  Perhaps the writers of Powershell could investigate that language a little and discover the power of multiple stages and having multiple outputs at the sametime through filters etc.  Perhaps add in an SQL driver for input and output.

  • Hi, the current RC1 download (amd64.zip)is working fine for Vista Beta2 64, yet (i386.zip) does not work for Vista Beta2 32 (Build 5472) and is saying: "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

    Can you help?
