INTRODUCTION

This article describes the Microsoft Windows PowerShell 1.0 Release Candidate (RC2) English update package for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and for Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2).

MORE INFORMATION

Windows PowerShell is a new command-line shell and scripting language for the system administration and management of applications that run in Windows. Windows PowerShell helps accelerate automation and is easy for organizations to learn and to use.

Windows PowerShell 1.0 uses Package Installer technology for Windows XP-based and for Windows Server 2003-based installations. The location of the Windows PowerShell installation folder is not configurable. For computers that are running x86-based versions of Windows, Windows PowerShell Setup is installed in the following folder:
%Windir%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\V1.0
By default, 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows PowerShell are installed for computers that are running x64-based versions of Windows.

The 64-bit version of Windows PowerShell is installed in the following folder:
%Windir%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\V1.0
The 32-bit version of Windows PowerShell is installed in the following folder:
%Windir%\Syswow64\WindowsPowerShell\V1.0
Note %Windir% represents the path of the Windows system folder. Typically, C:\Windows is the path of the Windows system folder.
