Installing PowerShell v3 Help

by Oct 1, 2012

PowerShell v3 comes without help files. To get help, you need to download the help files first. In an elevated PowerShell console, use this command:

PS> Update-Help -Force

Currently, help is available only on English systems. To use English help on non-English systems, download help like this:

PS> Update-Help -UICulture en-us -Force

Then, go to the downloaded help files and copy them from the en-US folder to your locale folder:

PS> explorer $pshome
