Microsoft Windows Management Framework

The Windows Management Framework includes several features, the most useful of which are probably PowerShell and WMI.


WMF 3 requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 and can be installed on Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 SP2 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. It is already present on Windows 8.

Heed well the warnings on the download page: Do not install WMF 3 with System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, System Center Virtual Machine Manager, Exchange 2007, Exchange 2010, SharePoint 2010, Windows Small Business Server 2008 or Windows Small Business Server 2011.

Note that a reboot will almost certainly be required.

         KB2823180 as part of this installation process, especially if you want
         to be unable to remove WMF 3 cleanly later. -->

   <!-- We'll need to reboot after installing WMF 3.0 if we want to install
        other packages that depend on it. Otherwise, we can put it off until
        the next time the computer's rebooted and continue from there; of
        course, things that require WMF 3.0 will fail to install until that
        happens. -->
