Hi Microsoft Tech provides complete documentation for up gradation, you can get that by click here. I’m giving a few steps needed before proceeding to update, first check dot NET Framework version you are using. It must be higher than 4.5.

So if you don’t have, you can download by clicking here (It is an offline installer). Next download WMF 4 to download WMF click here. Reboot your system.Check the PowerShell version by $psversion table in CMD. Note no need to install ISE separately, ISE downloaded with WMF in the background. Note: you can upgrade to 3.0, 4.0 is available with server 2012.

If you want to update your Windows PowerShell to version 3.0 or 4.0, first, check what version you are using. Click “Start” then in the search field type without quotes “powershell” and then click “Windows PowerShell” in the results. In the “Windows PowerShell” console or window, type the following command then hit Enter:

$PSVersionTable

After this, look for the “PSVersion” value. This indicates the version of your Windows PowerShell.
