Summary

In .NET Core, just as it has been in MacOS, Linux, and other Unix derivatives for a long time, an application is not a single monolithic file. I suggest you go and start packaging the scripts and additional files as an MSI to deploy your solutions if you have not done so already. If you want to deploy dozens of little packaged utilities, it becomes a little ridiculous that each one would have to contain the entire Powershell install (roughly 220 MB or so) within it. We also seriously doubt that any corporation or government entity will update its entire network to a new PowerShell version every month. The install folder is version-specific; multiple runtimes can coexist, and, going forward, applications packaged for different versions will not interfere with one another.
