PowerShell 2.0 RTM

Post by Mechanic » Wed Apr 25, 2018 1:14 am

PowerShell 2.0 RTM is available for all versions of Windows?
In our office plan to purchase a licensed version PowerShell 2.0 RTM. And now we have a question, is it suitable for all versions of Windows? And whether there can be problems at use in the future?
Thanks for the answer, mechanic

I am sorry, but I am not quite sure what you are asking. PowerShell 2.0 is now simply a compatibility mode in PowerShell 3,4, 5 and 5.1. Since Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a part of the Windows Operating System, there is no need to purchase it, so I am guessing you are asking about something else. Can you please elaborate?

I never heard of PowerShell 2.0 licensing as its been integrated with Windows 7/8. Most important, this is an old technology and has been deprecated from recent releases of Windows Operating Systems.

Thanks, I'm not sure about this. My boss said to find out about this, apparently he was just joking with me. I just started working in his office. Got caught on his joke. I'm sorry for such a stupid question.. mechanic
