Unable to fire up PowerShell Studio

Post by theotherkidd » Wed Apr 17, 2019 8:09 am

Product, version and build:
32 or 64 bit version of product: 64 bit
Operating system: Windows 10
32 or 64 bit OS: 64

After the latest update to PowerShell Studio, I am no longer able to fire up PowerShell Studio due to .NET 4.7.1. When I try to install .NET 4.7.1 I get an error stating my OS .NET 4.7.1 is not supported on this OS. Is there a way for me to reinstall an older version of PowerShell Studio? I use this product daily. Thanks

That is an odd error since Windows 10 definitely supports .NET 4.7.1.

1. What build of Windows 10 are you using? Is it a preview build or an old build of Windows 10?

2. Try downloading the full version of .NET 4.7.1 installer from here:

Windows 10 build 10240. I figured how to download an older version of PowerShell Studio and I'm good to go now. I'll just avoid updating the product going forward. Thanks for you rapid response David.

Before you roll back, try the following:

1. Go to PowerShell Studio's installation folder and open the PowerShell Studio.exe.config file:

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files\SAPIEN Technologies, Inc\PowerShell Studio 2019\PowerShell Studio.exe.config
2. Replace this line:

Code: Select all

<supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.7.1" />
with this:

Code: Select all

<supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.5.2"/>
3. Save and try running the application.
