    Just getting into PS. What is the latest version of PS that runs on Windows 7?

    Thanks,

    WMF 5.1 for windows 7 can be downloaded from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=54616

    On Windows 7 you won't get most of the additional modules you get on Windows 8 and later

    I also believe you have to install WMF 4 first.

    Oops! Is there a list of what modules would be missing? (I was hoping with the latest PS version that I would get all the PS modules. My current interest is using PS to work with SQL Server.)

    Thanks,

    Was totally unaware of that. Will try installing PS 5.1 on a Win 7 test box to see what happens before applying it to my work machine!

    The following links states that to install PS 5.1 on Win 7

    1, At least .NET 4.5.2 Framework must be installed

    2. No mention of prior WMF versions — except that WMF 3 should not be installed — is mentioned.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/wmf/5.1/install-configure

    The instructions also have you run a .ps1 script (in Admin mode) with your current version of Powershell. it will check that all prereqs are met and only then, do the PS 5 upgrade.

    More involved than I expected. (BTW: Win 7 steps are unique. The doc describes different steps to take for later OSes.)
