Windows PowerShell & Windows Vista

  • Comments 43

We've had many questions about when Windows PowerShell will be released for Windows Vista. We plan to release Windows PowerShell 1.0 by January 31st, 2007. 

Cheers!

  • Please add 7 and 2 and type the answer here:

  • I'm adding another vote against this madness.

    Why not release RC1 or BetaN of Powershell for Vista as an MSI and everybody would be happy.-

    Dearest Microsoft this is madness and you are disappearing up you own ****-****, you have 30,000 mouths to feed in Redmond along and the computing industry has a habit of leaving for dead those that take their eye off the ball.

  • Hi, Please print these comments to your "Boss" and tell him we want the feature now. The RTM is out and there is people that would like to use it. It was out for RC1, why not the RTM? I consider it one more feature for compulsive buyers to go into the shelf and buy the product. _Stop_ the marketing thing and release this feature to us now.

    Seriously consider it.

  • What I would also like to see is more information on "the new CBS technology" please someon post me a link for it. I would like to see what more it offers for the extra two months work

    Be forewarned that they don't use the term CBS and that they are talking about the full set of Installation/Migration technologies but this is the best link I can find.

  • Jeffrey,

    I just wanted to say that I saw you at TechEd, and I thought that your presentation was the best of the week.  I think this product will revolutionize Windows administration, and can't thank you enough for all the work you've done.  That being said, I've had Vista as my primary OS since Beta 2, and have had to resort to running Powershell out of a VM.  I'm sure your hands are probably tied, and you've shown considerable patience in this onslaught of public outrage (I've posted outrage on different threads myself).  I know it's not your fault, and I hope you don't lose any sleep over the horribly mismanaged installer fiasco.  Keep up the good work!

  • Thanks for your kind words Janssen!  The whole team feels bad about the lag in Vista support which is why we are working hard to get it done.

  • I fully understand why MS has to delay PowerShell on Vista. It's regrettable, but understandable.

    In the meantime, you can run PowerShell on Vista. It's not supported, but it works just fine here. I've been using the hack for over a week and am not having any issues.

  • Have you got an update on availability for Vista?

  • Well I've justed watched Bill Gates keynote at the Microsoft Vista launch event in New York... The kids pressed the button - Vista Ulimate Extras appeared, but no PowerShell :-(

  • One would have expected it today, but if you read the fine print in the original post, it's actually scheduled for tomorrow.

  • As Jeffery promised to you folks, today we have offically released Windows PowerShell 1.0 for Microsoft Windows Vista. Thanks to everyone for patiently waiting for this release.

    Keep up the great work!
