TFS Build: Unable to load task handler PowerShell for task …


While I was trying run a TFS build for the first time on a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 machine, I got the following error

Unable to load task handler PowerShell for task Maven with version 1.0.13

To determine the Powershell version that is installed on your system:

Open Windows Powershell

Type $PSVersionTable.PSVersion

If you have a version that is lower than 3.0, you will need to update to a recent version of Powershell

In my case, I had PS 2.0 installed. I upgraded to PS 4.0 which I downloaded from

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40855

and that fixed my issue

PS: read the installation instructions to determine proper file name to download
