PowerTip: Find PowerShell Version

Summary: Easily find your Windows PowerShell version.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question Is there a single command I can use to find the version of Windows PowerShell I am running, plus the version of
          WSMan and the .NET Framework command-line reference (CLR)?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the $PSVersionTable automatic variable to display the Windows PowerShell version,
          WSMan stack information, .NET Framework CLR version information, and other information:

PS C:\> $PSVersionTable

    Does not work (Windows XP)

    just type host in the console and check the version

  4. Omer.Nasr says:

    Use $PSVersionTable.PSVersion to determine the engine version. If the variable does not exist, it is safe to assume the engine is version 1.0.
