Yesterday we published a Beta version of the Windows Management Framework 3.0.

Windows Management Framework 3.0 Beta makes some updated management functionality available to earlier versions of Windows. Windows Management Framework 3.0 Beta can be installed on the following Operating Systems:

  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (32-bit & 64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (64-bit only)
  • Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (32-bit & 64-bit) – NEW! Beginning with this Beta release.

 

Windows Management Framework 3.0 contains Windows PowerShell 3.0, WMI and WinRM. The Beta version also includes a Server Manager CIM provider. This CIM provider allows users of Server Manager in Windows Server “8” to collect and view management data from servers with Windows Management Framework 3.0 installed.

 

Feedback & Bugs
We welcome any feedback or bug submissions to the Windows PowerShell Connect site: http://connect.microsoft.com/PowerShell. The release notes include a list of user submitted Connect bugs that have been fixed since Windows Management Framework 3.0 Community Technology Preview #2.

 

Additional Information:
Release notes are available on the download page. They contain important information about changes since Windows PowerShell 2.0 and a list of known issues.

You must uninstall any other copies of Windows Management Framework 3.0 before installing Windows Management Framework 3.0 Beta.

This software is a pre-release version. Features and behavior are likely to change before the final release.
