I'm a bit of a newbie to PowerShell, and hope someone out there can help.
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:
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:
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.
Thanks in advance.
I've not run into this. When running 64-bit as Administrator, Update-Help runs and downloads everything in the core About set.
I suppose as a workaround you could download them from the GitHub repo where they live.
