I was asking myself if I could import PowerShell modules from a newer Windows version.
*-NetAdapter CMDLets in Windows 8 and 8.1 are quite nice, so I wanted to use 'em in Windows 7 too. Unfortunately they need PowerShell 4.0. I managed to upgrade my local PowerShell and found out that it doesn't include the CMDlets. I found the location of the module on Windows 8 and copied to my Windows 7 machine. When I try to use
Get-NetAdapter on Windows 7, I get an error. The error is the following:
Get-NetAdapter : invalid namespace Get-NetAdapter ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : MetadataError: (MSFT_NetAdapter:ROOT/StandardCim v2/MSFT_NetAdapter) [Get-NetAdapter], CimException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : HRESULT 0x8004100e,Get-NetAdapter
Is there a way to make this, or other newer CMDLets from Windows 8/Server 2012, available on Windows 7/Server 2008?
