You can install PowerShell Universal using the Chocolatey package. The package runs the MSI install. It will install Universal as a service and open a web browser after the install.
You can login with the "admin" user and any password.
choco install powershelluniversal
You can install PowerShell Universal using Winget. It will run the MSI and install as a service.
winget install ironmansoftware.powershelluniversal
You can also specify the
--silent flag to prevent the installer from showing and the web browser from opening at the end of the install.
winget install ironmansoftware.powershelluniversal --silent
You can also download the ZIP from our Downloads page if you would like to xcopy deploy the files on Windows or Linux.
You can start Universal by unzipping the contents, unblocking the files and then executing
Expand-Archive -Path .\Universal.zip -DestinationPath .\UniversalGet-ChildItem .\Universal -Recurse | Unblock-FileStart-Process .\Universal\Universal.Server.exe
On Linux, start the process
Universal.Server. You may need to
chmod +x the file if it does not start.
See the Docker page.
The MSI install will create a PowerShell Universal service and open the admin console after installation.
Setting the SUPPRESBROWSER MSI property to true will prevent the browser from opening after installation.
At this point, Universal is up and running. Please consult other sections in this documentation for instructions on how to configure, secure, and start using PowerShell Universal. Happy Scripting!
