Did you know that you can enable VT100 terminal emulation in PowerShell as well as the Cmd window?

  1. I knew you needed tools for this in the past, but was not aware that somewhere in the Windows 10 release sequence this became supported, but is turned off by default.

  2. Which PowerShell version does that need?

    On a Windows 8.1 Pro edition:

    PS C:bin> $PSVersionTable.PSVersion

    Major Minor Build Revision
    —– —– —– ——
    4 0 -1 -1

    PS C:bin> Get-ComputerInfo | select WindowsProductName, WindowsVersion, OsHardwareAbstractionLayer
    Get-ComputerInfo : The term ‘Get-ComputerInfo’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Get-ComputerInfo | select WindowsProductName, WindowsVersion, OsHardwareAbstract …
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (Get-ComputerInfo:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException
