More information

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

Windows PowerShell includes the following features:
  • More than 130 command-line tools ("cmdlets") that you can use to perform common system administration tasks. These tasks include managing services, managing processes, managing event logs, managing certificates, modifying the registry, and using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).
  • Command-line tools that are easy to learn and easy to use. These tools have standard naming conventions and common parameters. The tools also include simple tools to sort, to filter, and to format data and objects.
  • Support for existing scripting languages, for existing command-line tools, and for multiple versions of Windows. These versions include Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008.
  • Features that let users browse data stores as if they were file systems. These data stores include the registry and certificate stores.
  • Standard utilities for managing Windows data in different stores and formats. These stores and formats include Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI), Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), COM objects, ActiveX Data Objects (ADO), HTML, and XML.
  • Sophisticated expression parsing and manipulation of objects in the .NET Framework at the command line. This manipulation includes the pipelining of objects to help IT professionals work more efficiently and effectively.
  • An extensible interface that enables independent software vendors and enterprise developers to build custom cmdlets. You can use custom cmdlets to meet unique application and system administration requirements.

Installation sequence

Each version of Windows PowerShell 1.0 is associated with a version-specific MUI language pack. The MUI interface works correctly only when you have the same versions of the Windows PowerShell program and the MUI Language Pack.

If you have any other versions of Windows PowerShell 1.0 on the computer, uninstall the MUI language pack and the other version of Windows PowerShell 1.0 before you install the new version and the new MUI language pack. The installation program for the Windows PowerShell 1.0 MUI language pack fails if the system does not have all the required programs, or if it has any other version of the Windows PowerShell 1.0 MUI language pack.

To install the Windows PowerShell 1.0 MUI Language Pack, follow these steps:
  1. Uninstall any other Windows PowerShell 1.0 MUI language packs.
  2. Uninstall any other versions of Windows PowerShell 1.0.

  4. Install the Windows PowerShell 1.0 MUI language pack.

The resource files for each language are installed in the following directories.

On 32-bit versions of Windows, the language-specific resource files for the MUI Language Pack are installed in the following folder:
%windir%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\V1.0\<locale>
Note In this folder, %windir% represents the Windows system folder. Typically, this folder is C:\Windows.

By default, the language resource files for both the 32-bit versions and 64-bit versions of Windows PowerShell are installed in the following locations on 64-bit versions of Windows:
  • The 64-bit version of Windows PowerShell is installed in the following folder:
    %windir%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\V1.0\<locale>
  • The 32-bit version of Windows PowerShell is installed in the following folder:
