Windows Management Framework 3.0 Available for Download

PowerShell Team

We hope that you’ve been enjoying all of the great new Windows PowerShell 3.0 features in Windows Server 2012. We wanted to make sure that everyone knows the final release of Windows Management Framework 3.0 is also available for download from the Microsoft Download Center.

Windows Management Framework 3.0 makes much of the same great management functionality from Windows Server 2012 available to earlier versions of Windows. Windows Management Framework 3.0 allows you to install Windows PowerShell 3.0 (including a new version of WMI and WinRM) on the following Operating Systems:

  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (32-bit & 64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (64-bit only, includes Server Core) 
  • Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (32-bit & 64-bit)


Note: You must uninstall any of the pre-release packages of Windows Management Framework prior to installing the final release.
