Powershell 2.0 for Windows XP – How can I get this up and running

Recently I had to work with Powershell on a windows XP machine and I was wondering how to to set this up.I had never worked with Powershell on XP and was curious on how to configure it.

I was able to find a KB article for Windows Management Framework which included Powershell 2.0


I was able to find the correct product and downloaded the same.

The install went smooth and a reboot was not forced.I was back running with powershell on windows XP again.

Thanks for reading.
