Cannot import modules in Powershell


I cannot import any modules in Powershell due to this error:

This was with a fresh install of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. I installed Powershell as a Windows feature through the Server Manager. It was not installed already when I installed Windows Server.


That’s because Windows 2008 only comes with PowerShell 1.0 which used Snapins. If you need module support: install PowerShell 2.0 or 3.0. Links til installers:

Powershell 2.0: x64 (64-bit) or x86 (32-bit)

PowerShell 3.0

To install PS 3.0 you need at least 2008 SP2(and download the windows 6.0 64 or 32 bit version).
