Installation Guide

Windows PowerShell 5.1

Introduced in 2022.1

Windows PowerShell is a crucial prerequisite for a complete workflow experience. That's why Alloy Navigator components require Windows PowerShell 3.0 or later, up to 5.1.

The Alloy Installer checks for Windows PowerShell automatically before installation. The Check Prerequisites window shows the status in the PowerShell row.

A required version of Windows PowerShell comes installed by default in every Windows release, starting with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2008 R2. On earlier releases of Windows (namely, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008) you may need to update your existing PowerShell in Windows. In that case, the Check Prerequisites window displays a warning message along with a hyperlink. Visit the Microsoft Download Center to install Windows PowerShell 5.1.

NOTE: The installation package for Windows PowerShell comes inside a Windows Management Framework (WMF) installer. The version of the WMF installer matches the version of Windows PowerShell; there's no standalone installer for Windows PowerShell. For additional information, see the Microsoft article Installing WIndows PowerShell.
