PowerShell

Making Sure You’re Running the Latest Version of a PowerShell Module

Microsoft makes it easy to make sure that your PowerShellGet installed PowerShell modules are up-to-date with the latest version. Simply rerun the install-module command you used when installing the specific module originally. This causes PowerShell to go to the PowerShell gallery and if a newer version of the specific module is available, it will install it over top the one currently installed.

As an example, here’s how to update the AzureAD module:

install-module AzureAD

Of course, this is the method to use to also install the AzureAD module if it wasn’t installed already.

Unfortunately, Microsoft currently provides no auto-update method for PowerShell modules like it does for the Windows operating system through Windows Update services. You’ll just have to remember to perform this manual procedure periodically. Or, as a best practice – each time you use a specific module just check for updates first.
