Windows 7: PowerShell 3.0 for Win 7 now available

08 Sep 2012   #11

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
 
 

You won't need to remove PS 2.0. The installer for 3.0 is intelligent. Showed one peculiarity but install ran perfectly.

Probably be easier learning with 3.0.

All appears correct. I went here:
Download: WMF 3.0 - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

and clicked on the download button for the x64 6.1 version.

I did not uninstall previous version and 3.0 install correctly detected my profile changes that I had been using.

Gee. It looks like it is a return to the dark ages when all we had was a blinking cursor and a command line interface: CPM, MSDOS, DRDOS, UNIX et.al... As far as I am concerned a power shell is the next step after the windows 8 trend. It will be a complete obliteration of a graphical user interface. Might as well have stayed with UNIX and been done with it. None of this easy to use graphical stuff. Only cryptic commands with incomprehensible argument strings. Then for a text editor, we could use vi. Wow!

Hey, I have an idea! Lets really go into prehistory and start using punched cards and punched paper tape. That way no one will have the foggiest idea what we are doing but will still be willing to pay us huge sums for doing it. Which, I strongly suspect is the real reason for the existence of a "power shell".

GACK! Forgive me for thinking that a power shell isn't god's gift to mankind. I stopped using command line systems over 20 years ago and am quite happy to leave them to molder in the dust of ancient history.

Tried it again and it say it not for my system. Could it be because I use Home Premium 64 that I can only use the 32 bit Power Shell?PowerShell 3.0 for Win 7 now available-capture.png
From what I have read I should be able to use the 64. Of course I wrong a lot of times.

The 64/32 refers to your operating system as opposed to the computer architecture.

You can see the computer architecture using MSINFO32.exe

You can see the OS System Type by:
WIN + PAUSE keycombo | in the middle, under System, you will see System Type.

Here's a snip of that area on my laptop.
