Automating the world one-liner at a time…
Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 have been released to manufacturing. Both of these products include Windows PowerShell 2.0 and its exciting new features, such as remoting, ISE, modules, advanced functions, enhanced WMI support, and a variety of new cmdlets, plus a ton of other features. We are proud of this release.
We thank the PowerShell community, specially our MVPs, for helping us to make a great product.
In the next few months, we will release a downlevel package for installing Windows PowerShell 2.0 on Windows XP SP3, Windows 2003 SP2, Windows Vista-SP1 and Windows Server 2008.

[Update: Win2k3-SP2 was missed in the original post - thanks Dmitry/Ken]
Dave: The Windows Management Framework is PowerShell and its supporting technologies. For example, WS Management is included, as provides the networking support for PowerShell Remoting.

Its kind of confusing all of the different version of this product. Why cant it be PowerShell version 1.0 , 2.0, then 3.0 for the CTP3. Also, will it ever be available on the MSDN download site ?
Any chance of updating this post with the URL for downloading the down-level version of V2?
PowerShell 2.0 upgrade removing the PowerShell 1.0 exe short cut from program files but actual exe file existing in sytem32/powershell folder.
Any Idea to overcome this problem ?
Thanks in advance.
Exchange Management SP2 does NOT provide Powershell v2.0 support whatsoever.
Notice how you list the version and PSVersion is still 1.0? It is not 2.0.
If you try and load the Snap-In Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Admin in C# .NET on a 64-bit app, it gives the error "No snap-in found for version 2"
Name : microsoft.exchange.management.powershell.admin
PSVersion : 1.0
Description : Admin Tasks for the Exchange Server
Name : ConsoleHost
Version : 2.0
OMG! Powershell is like Superman but better!

PowerShell 2.0 and PowerShell 1.0 use the same exe. No need to worry about removing it.
