Maybe this will help?

I use $PSVersionTable I've never used the one you are showing.

You should use $PSVersionTable. There's a difference between the version of the host application and the version of the PowerShell engine; you only care about the latter.

Pls see this.
PS C:\> $PSVersionTable

What version of the OS is this computer running?

if $PSVersionTable still showing that then your install did not succeed. Make sure your OS is supported by the Management Framework.

From the bottom of the download page it sounds like only Server 2008 R2 or newer is supported for 4.0.

We acknowledge that there is still a need for management of Windows Server 2008, and Windows Management Framework 3.0 remains the answer for Windows Server 2008.

Boe Prox just posted this this morning as well. Further proof that Windows 2008 RTM and older OSes may not be eligible for W M Framework 4.0
