It's a Wrap! Windows PowerShell 1.0 Released!

  • Comments 77

Today at the keynote at ITForum in Barcelona, we announced the official release of Windows PowerShell 1.0!  

For those of you unfamiliar with Windows PowerShell, it is a best of breed next-generation commandline shell designed from the ground up to be flexible and powerful while still remaining easy to use. Many thanks go to our friends at MySpace.com for coming all the way to Barcelona to show how they're using Windows PowerShell in production today for the mission critical task of maintaining and managing the second busiest website in the world.

To download Windows PowerShell, please visit: http://www.microsoft.com/powershell/download

Finally, thanks to each and every one of you in the Windows PowerShell community! We've been extremely grateful and appreciative of the high level of community support and fantastic feedback we've received throughout the time we've been developing PowerShell. With your help, we've created the best shell experience ever for the Windows platform. We're confident you'll be very pleased with the result!

Thanks again and Enjoy!

Leonard Chung, Jeffrey Snover, and Arul Kumaravel on behalf of the PowerShell Team

Update:  PowerShell is also available for Vista-RC1 and Windows Server Code Name "Longhorn" IDS 5600. Please visit: http://www.microsoft.com/powershell/download

[Edit: Updated links 2:40pm and clarified Vista information. ]

  • The Powershell install is actually a KB install. Currently it is KB926139, however I could not find that KB number in my windows directory. After fishing around a bit, I found:

    C:\WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB925228$\spuninst

    Uninstalling this one got the old PS install off my box. I was then able to install the new one. Apparently the CTPs had different KB numbers than the current one. The file to look for to let you know which KB is the right one would be "PSCustomSetupUtil.exe".

    Let me redirect you to the newsgroup Microsoft.Public.Windows.PowerShell.  Post the problem there along with the specific errors you are getting.  That newsgroup is monitored by the the team a community of smart folks with lots of scar tissue.  One of them might have encountered the same problem and know how to work around it.

  • There have been many comments concerning the removal of PowerShell prior to upgrading to Vista. Yes, you can remove PowerShell using the Add/Remove routine; however, to be able to see the entry, you must check the "Show Updates" box and it will show up under "Windows XP - Software Updates".

  • There is a update package for XP/W2K3 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926139) and CBS package for Vista (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928439). Both of them support cmdline quiet install.

  • How to uninstall Powershell?  I also had problems with this.

    Look here:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926139

    Explains it perfectly.

  • no url. is there a way to uninstall windows powershell from Vista there are many errors in the OS ultimate and Dell is completely lost. don't know why they installed it in first place

  • DAVMAN is the only one who posted correctly...

    It is a KB that is listed under "Windows Server 2003" category after you click "Show Updates", the flippin' ICON shows you which one it is, but in case you want your hand held... follow his instructions!
