Install Windows Terminal on Windows Server 2022

Currently, you can test Windows Server 2022 by installing the latest preview builds (Like Windows Server Preview Build 20344). As you might know, I am a huge fan of the Windows Terminal, and since Windows Server 2022 by default does not include the Windows Terminal, I wanted to quickly show you how you can install the Windows Terminal on Windows Server 2022.

How to install Windows Terminal on Windows Server 2022

Luckily we can simply download the MSIX bundle from the Windows Terminal GitHub release page. You can also run the following PowerShell command to download the file (Make sure you change the Uri to the latest version).

Invoke-WebRequest -Uri https://github.com/microsoft/terminal/releases/download/v1.7.1091.0/Microsoft.WindowsTerminal_1.7.1091.0_8wekyb3d8bbwe.msixbundle -outfile Microsoft.WindowsTerminal_1.7.1091.0_8wekyb3d8bbwe.msixbundle

Now you can run the following PowerShell command to add the msixbudle and install the Windows Terminal on Windows Server 2022.

Add-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsTerminal_<versionNumber>.msixbundle

In my example this would be:

Add-AppxPackage -Path .\Microsoft.WindowsTerminal_1.7.1091.0_8wekyb3d8bbwe.msixbundle

Keep in mind, when you install the Windows Terminal manual like this, it will not automatically update itself.
