    IMPORTANT NOTES for your Operating System:

        PowerShell 4 and later requires at least .NET 3.5.1.
        This package will warn you and exit if it is not installed.
        It is not automatically installed as a dependency so that you
        maintain complete control over the .NET version in your build.

        Windows 8.1, Windows 2012R2: Installs PowerShell 5.0.
        Windows 8: PowerShell 4.0 not supported.  PowerShell 3.0 installed by default
        Windows 7 SP1, Windows 2008 R2 SP1, or Windows 2012: PowerShell 5.0 installed (as of 5.0.10105 April 2015 Preview)
           ATTENTION: Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 Required WMF/PowerShell 4.0 to be installed first.
             This package will install 4 if it is not installed and instruct you to re-run the package using -Force
             Or you can just install WMF 4 first if you have this already setup in build automation.
             This is a temporary restriction that Microsoft is working on removing for the final release.
        Windows Vista or Windows 2008: Directs to PowerShell 3.0 install
