I just installed XP SP2 and I was expecting to have PowerShell 1.0 installed; however, it isn't.
It seems I have to manually install it. If I upgrade to SP3 do I get PowerShell.
PowerShell 1.0 was released in 2006 for Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista. It is an optional component of Windows Server 2008.
PowerShell 2.0 is integrated with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and is released for Windows XP with Service Pack 3, Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 2, and Windows Vista with Service Pack 1.
It seems PowerShell 1.0 or 2.0 doesn't get installed by default in XP SP3, 2003 and Vista.
I can't find any concrete information can someone confirm this please.
