Windows 10 Insider Build 17704 missing PowerShell PSReadLine Module

There has been some noise around “Whatever happened to PSReadLine on this build?“. Well, its a very vague comment. And, due to I’ve been working more with PowerShell Core then I’m starting to stop paying attention to Windows PowerShell.

What did happened with Build 17704?

OK!! So, Windows PowerShell in Build 17704 is missing the PSReadLine Module. So, the workaround is simple to download it from the PowerShell Gallery.

Except! That you need version 2.0.0 (not 1.2).

Check the link:

This is good thing because you can install and uninstall module when version 2.0.0 final release get published.
You don’t want to use version 1.2.

Installing PSReadLine in Windows PowerShell

The following command will install the 2.0.0-beta2:

Install-Module -Name PSReadLine -AllowPrerelease -Repository PSGallery

I’m hoping this will help!


There’s no issues with PowerShell Core and PSReadLine Module!
