Can PowerCLI run on Windows Server 2012?

Having trouble getting it installed...  .NET Framework 4.5 is already installed by default...

Did you try installing .Net 3.5 (which will include .Net 2) to an alternate source directory.

See Windows 2012 and .Net 3.5 Feature Install

In order to support installing PowerCLI to a desktop system the following prerequisites software packages must be present:

· Windows .Net Framework 2.0 (3.5 latest SP Recommended)

· Windows PowerShell (V2 Recommended)

I just ran into something like this on Monday. Check out the link below. Make sure you have the Server 2012 media in the DVD drive. If the drive letter is different from 😧 then substitute for the drive letter that contains the media. Easiest way to add the feature is to use dism.exe. This command will add dotNET 3.5 SP1 and dotNET 2.0 features to your Windows 2012 server. Hope this helps.

dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /all /Source:D:\sources\sxs

I know this is a little bit of a stale thread, but in addition to enabling .NET 3.5, on Windows 2012 you also have to add the Powershell V2 engine.
