Installing the AWS Tools for Windows PowerShell
The pre-requisites for the AWS Tools for Windows PowerShell are minimal. Windows XP or later, with PowerShell 2.0 or later, is the requirement, so that is a pretty low bar.
Anything from Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 and up already meets these requirements, so there’s little to do but download the MSI from Amazon Web Services and install it.
If you’ll be doing the installation across multiple computers or want to automate it I’ve also published a PowerShell script to install the AWS Tools for PowerShell.
