Update 9th March 2016 - PowerShell Team released an updated version of the PackageManagement modules today and I’ve updated the Script accordingly and will install the latest PackageManagement modules for you with a little verbose output
Updated Microsoft blog is at https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/powershell/2016/03/08/package-management-preview-march-2016-for-powershell-4-3-is-now-available/
This is a very very quick post about the latest feature being made available downlevel from Powershell v5.
As Microsoft have released PackageManagement (formally OneGet) that is now avaliable for PowerShell v3 & v4 as detailed in this link http://blogs.msdn.com/b/powershell/archive/2015/10/09/package-management-preview-for-powershell-4-amp-3-is-now-available.aspx
That’s right the ability to pull directly from the PowerShell Gallery but you need to install the Package Management release which I’ve Scripted for you here.
And what better way than a simple 1 liner to grab and run the script
Invoke-Expression (New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadString(‘http://bit.ly/PSPackManInstaller’)
And if you want to look at the Script then direct link is http://bit.ly/PSPackManInstaller – this takes you to the RAW version of the file on Github so will not download or execute – but will allow you to read it
Hope this is useful for you
