I've got PowerShell V5 installed on a 64-bit version of Windows 7. When I run the 32-bit version of PowerShell, as Administrator, and execute: get-help *about* I get a nice long listing of help files. However, performing the same action in 64-bit PowerShell, again as Administrator, all I get is a solitary listing for: about_BITS_Cmdlets Entries for the other about_ files are missing. I've tried updating help several times using update-help, but to no avail. I've also closed and restarted PowerShell several times too, to try and affect changes. Clearly, I'd prefer to be using the 64-bit version of PowerShell, but this lack of help regarding about_ files is annoying. Help for the Cmdlet and Function categories seems to work fine in both 32 and 64-bit PS. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I suppose as a workaround you could download them from the GitHub repo where they live. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
