How to tell what version of PowerShell you have RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've googled it, searched the forums, but can't find how to see what version of PowerShell I have.   I found "powershell.exe" on my computer in the System32 directory, but in the Details section of the Properties, it says it is version 6.1.7.   As I understand, version 2 is the latest, and still don't know if version 2 works with SQL Server 2008.

    I'm using Windows 7, 32 bit.

    Can someone tell me how to tell what version I have?   Thank you!

  • 6.1.7 is the build version.

    If you have started PowerShell, enter


    to the prompt, then press Enter. Or simply: $PSVersionTable, you will see there are versions of multiple things.

  • By the way, there is a Windows Powershell forum, if you would like to ask further questions about PowerShell.
