    In "Learn PowerShell in a Month of Lunches" , section 2.4. What version is this? it briefly covers version 2 but what is said is confusing.

    On Windows 10, both V5 and V2 are installed. In the text it states that newer PowerShell versions can run in "V2 mode." But if I launch V2 isn't that what is running or is it V5 running in "V2 mode" ?

    I just want answers to the specific questions asked.

    Thank you for reading the book – I hope you're enjoying it.

    They're essentially the same thing. With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, v2 was deprecated, and so it is provided as a distinct install option. That's why it is presented the way you're seeing.

    I hope this only answers the specific questions asked.

      Thanks

      Yes Don, the book is good. I'm not going to make the 30 day deadline because I'm really picking the material apart. LOL...

      Learning the fundamentals will pay dividends later.
