any release builds for Win 7? #1931
@evandrix - I believe that the reason for there not being a current build for win7 would be for similar reasons to why to install WMF5 (aka PowerShell v5) requires WMF (& PowerShell v4) installed beforehand.
That said I'm clutching at a straw with that response so hopefully someone else can respond with more details in due course
@evandrix See #1705. We'd like to produce PowerShell Core for all supported versions of Windows (Win7+), but have a few remaining issues with our packages for Win 7 and Win 8. The fix, once identified, is potentially something that we could include in Alpha.10.
As @kilasuit mentioned, you will need to install a WMF to get PowerShell Core to work as expected on Win 7. Between Win 7 and Win 8, significant changes were made to WMI and WinRM (PowerShell dependencies) that make some form of WMF a pre-requisite.
I am closing this issue because we already have #1705 to track Win 7 support.
