Error with app deployment toolkit

Hello Team,

We have windows powershell version 2.0 in our environment. Whatever application we have created using PSAppdeployment toolkit does not seem to be compatible with windows powershell version 2.0.

And the installation is failing with the error “The application was not detected after installation completed”.

and we found out that there is powershell version 2.0 compatibility issue with the version PSAppdeployment toolkit we use.

  1. Kindly tell us which version of PSappdeployment toolkit is compatible with powershell version 2.0

2.And let us know how install Powershell 2.0 or downgrade latest powershell version to powershell version 2.0.


Please download latest version of the toolkit. Version 3 of the toolkit is compatible with powershell 2.0

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 come with Powershell 2.0. However support from Microsoft for Windows 7 has ended.
Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 come with Powershell 3.0
Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 come with Powershell 4.0
Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 come with Powershell 5.1

Can also upgrade to powershell v5.1 on any of these -
