Uninstalling PowerShell V1.0 from Windows Server 2003

Monday, April 6th, 2009

I was recently going to install the PowerShell V2.0 CTP because my buddy Lance was telling me how impressive the new integrated IDE was for PowerShell.

The V1.0 client in Windows Server 2003 is installed as an update to Windows, so you cannot simply uninstall it through the Add/Remove programs window like you can for most other programs.

After doing some digging in the Registry to find the update logs, I was able to uninstall PowerShell by running spuninst.exe here:
C:WINDOWS$NtUninstallKB926139-v2$spuninst

Please note that this could seriously affect your system stability, but thus far I have not had any issues and am digging the CTP.
