Microsoft Windows PowerShell 4.0 is the version of the PowerShell scripting language found in Windows Server 2012 R2.

Windows PowerShell 4.0 is backward compatible. This means that cmdlets, providers, modules, snap-ins, scripts, functions, and profiles that were designed for Windows PowerShell 3.0 and Windows PowerShell 2.0 work in Windows PowerShell 4.0 without changes. 

New features in PowerShell 4.0 include:

  •  Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) - enables the deployment and management of configuration data for software services and the environment in which these services run.
  • Save-Help - allows administrators to copy a saved Help to a remote shared folder or a remote computer that does not have Internet access.
  • Enhanced PowerShell debugger -  allows administrators to debug Windows PowerShell workflows and scripts that are running on remote computers.
