PowerShell 3.0 is available for downlevel systems

Windows Management Framework 3.0 was released yesterday. It includes updated management functionality for Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, and Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 are not supported). Windows Management Framework 3.0 contains Windows PowerShell 3.0 and the new versions of WMI and WinRM.

WMF 3.0 requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0, you can download it at: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=212547

A link to the download page is also available in the Downloads sidebar, on the right hand side menu of the magazine’s homepage.

You can install WMF 3.0 over PowerShell 2.0. In case you have a pre-release version of PowerShell 3.0 installed already, you need to remove it before the installation of WMF3.0.

Note: WMF 3.0 is a part of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 operating systems.

    I installed WMF 3 on one Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V server in hope to be able to have my Windows 8 client connect to it with HV manger client.

    if before the WMF installation i got “This version of Hyper-V Manager cannot be used to manage servers running Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2.”

    now i get “Cannot connect to the RPC service on computer ‘CompName’. Make sure your RPC service is running.”

    the RPC issue does not occur on Win7 client nor even on 5nine Manager on the Win8 client.

    any idea?

    Windows 8 Hyper-V manager can connect only to Hyper-V 3.0 systems (Windows Server 2012), 
    As far as I know WMF has nothing to do with it.

  3. I thought this was a workaround to install WMF 3.0 on downlevel(server 2003?) Systems. You can install posh3.0 on 2008 servers already??
