Update Windows Management Framework 5.0 on Windows 2012 R2

Please refer to the following tutorial on how to Update Windows Management Framework 5.0 on Windows 2012 R2 in my lab

I would like to take advantage of the following new features in WMF5

  • Software Discovery, Install and Inventory with PackageManagement
  • PowerShell Module Discovery, Install and Inventory with PowerShellGet
  • PowerShell Script Discovery, Install and Management with PowerShellGet

Windows 2012 R2 is installed with WMF4 , PowerShell version 4


Go to WMF5 and download Win8.1AndW2K12R2-KB3134758-x64.msu 


Reboot the server once the installation is completed


PowerShell had been upgraded to version 5 successfully
