Is it possible to use PowerShell 5 when running build scripts? It looks like only 4 is available, and Chocolatey fails to install PowerShell 5 if I try to install it myself.

    Hi Matthew,

    PowerShell 5 is installed on Unstable image. Specify os: unstable to use it. Be aware it runs on Azure and it takes some time to bring VM instance online.

    Worked, thanks for the tip!

    As you mentioned, it does take several minutes now to boot up a build... Any chance this will be integrated with the Windows 2012 OS image that is used for the quicker builds?

    When it's RTM'ed we would make it a part of default image.
