Windows PowerShell 1.0

  Limpy 14:23 29 May 2010

I have suddenly noticed that I have got Windows PowerShell 1.0 installed in my computer. I don't know how or when it happened. Does anybody know what it is for and how it could suddenly appear.

It looks like something that you don't need click here

Sorry VoG I clicked but it did not take me anywhere.

The link works for me.

Here's an extract

"Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a new command-line shell and scripting language that is designed for system administration and automation. Windows PowerShell lets IT professionals and developers control and automate the administration of Windows and applications. Also, Windows PowerShell is built on the Microsoft .NET Framework."

So if I didn't knowingly download it, how did it get there and do you think it is O.K. for me to remove it?

  Limpy 23:18 29 May 2010

I have just looked at my Add/Remove in control panel and it is not there???

Did you select the Show Updates box at the top? And it should be listed under Windows PowerShell - not under "P".

Yeah thanks I found it under Show Updates. So what do you think...just leave it or remove it?

I also have Windows PowerShell 1.0 installed. It seems to have become installed among a bunch of other Windows Updates earlier this month. I doubt if I will ever have any use for it but like Limpy I wonder if I should remove it via Add Remove Programs or jut leave it be.

I would remove it if you are not using it - via Add/Remove Programs
