Vagrant up stup issue in Windows


  1. Windows 7 Sp1
  2. PowerShell Version 4
  3. WMF 4
  4. Vagrant 1.9.6
  5. VirtualBox-6.0.4

When trying to issue the vagrant up command get the following issue

PS D:\university\m103\m103-vagrant-env> vagrant up
Must redirect to new repository for old Vagrant versions
No usable default provider could be found for your system.

Vagrant relies on interactions with 3rd party systems, known as
“providers”, to provide Vagrant with resources to run development
environments. Examples are VirtualBox, VMware, Hyper-V.

The easiest solution to this message is to install VirtualBox, which
is available for free on all major platforms.

If you believe you already have a provider available, make sure it
is properly installed and configured. You can see more details about
why a particular provider isn’t working by forcing usage with
vagrant up --provider=PROVIDER, which should give you a more specific
error message for that particular provider.

Please help to resolve

There is one possible solution:

Had to update the powershell as Windows 7 had powershell 2 and it needs powershell 3 as minimum. It seems the upgrade of the powershell was what was needed.

So, let me know if upgrading powershell solves the issue.
