Get Started

This chapter gets you started as quickly as possible with application.XO. We will guide you step-by-step through the on-boarding process, just follow the next chapters.

First of all you should check the System Requirements for PSADT, then download the PSADT Framework and PSADT Package Wizard.

System Requirements

The PowerShell App Deployment Toolkit has been developed (and tested) to work with a wide range of Operating Systems from Windows XP to Windows 8.1 (and the Windows Server equivalents) to provide enterprise-wide compatibility. The system requirements are as follows:

PowerShell 2.0

Windows NT 5.1 and above

While we have attempted to maintain this backwards compatibility through the lifecycle of the toolkit, the degree of testing performed across older Operating Systems such as XP and Vista is limited as the bulk of testing is performed on the latest OS versions. However, the toolkit has widespread adoption in the enterprise from SMEs to large multinationals so there is safety in numbers and the assurance that the toolkit has been put through its paces on hundreds of thousands of clients around the globe (original source).
