There are different ways to install AZURE modules for your Windows Power Shell. Please find the following approaches to achieve the goal:

  • Using Web Installer

  2. Here you will find many AZURE installer packages. Please choose the required package for installation.
    Go to Command-line Tools –> Click on “Windows Installnull

  4. Click on Install to start the installation.It will take some time to install all the AZURE modules.
  •  Using PowerShell Gallery

Note: This will work only if you are using WINDOWS 10.

  1. Open PowerShell ISE/Windows PowerShell.
  2. Check if the AZURE module is already installed by executing following powershell command

    If the module is already available then you will see the output as in following figure.

  3. If module has not installed yet,then we will see a blank output.In this case we need to install the module using following commandline.

  4. Update the module if the module already installed using following command line.
  5. Please verify the folder “C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules”.You will not find any AZURE packages before you run INSTALL-MODULE -NAME AZURE.
    Once you started execute the install-module, it will download the modules from internet and place under the folder.
