When trying to install ampagent-7.0.763-x86, I get an error message: "This application requires a version of Powershell to be installed." However, I am running Windows 10 Enterprise 1607 which already has PowerShell 5 installed.

  • I'm having this exact issue, and all of my endpoints are set to undefined. The linked article is useless. Literally just says "powershell is required for agent v7 and up". Any one else resolve this one?

Unfortunately I cannot view that article as it requires a login. Is there an alternate link? Thanks.

I figured it out. I ran:

Get-ExecutionPolicy -List

        Scope ExecutionPolicy
        ----- ---------------
MachinePolicy      Restricted
   UserPolicy      Restricted
      Process       Undefined
  CurrentUser       Undefined
 LocalMachine       Undefined

From the domain side, in Group Policy: ComputerConfiguration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | WindowsPowerShell | Turn On Script Execution was set to Disabled. We changed it to Not Configured. Problem solved.

Check if the power shell is enabled on the machine.
