Windows PowerShell Compatibility

This module provides PowerShell Core 6 compatibility with existing Windows PowerShell scripts and modules by:

  • Enable adding the Windows PowerShell PSModulePath
    • Note that some Windows PowerShell modules (like CDXML based) will work fine with PowerShell Core 6, but others may not be fully compatible
  • Enable using implicit remoting to utilize Windows PowerShell cmdlets from PowerShell Core 6 for modules that are not compatible directly


The WindowsCompatibility Module is available in the PowerShell Gallery. To install the module, run the following from PowerShell:

Install-Module WindowsCompatibility -Scope CurrentUser

Quick Start
