Determine the Windows PowerShell version

To reliably display the version of the Windows PowerShell engine

  1. Open a PowerShell command window,
  2. Execute the command,
    $PSVersionTable.PSVersion

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $PSVersionTable.PSVersion

    Major Minor Build   Revision
    —–   —–   ——-  ——-
    5       1        16299  64

  3. If no value is displayed, the version is 1.0, as it does not have the referenced variable.
