    Is there a way to get this? I downloaded the 4 versions i could find from Microsoft, and they all come up with "not applicable"..

    Install the .NET framework 4.0 first otherwise you'll receive that error even if it's the right version.

    What version of Windows? XP, Vista, 7?

    PowerShell 3 is only for WIndows 7/Server 2008 R2; Windows 8 / Server 2012 and up.

    Here's where you can find the .NET framework 4.0:

    And here's PowerShell 3.0:

    PowerShell 3 is for Windows 7 / Server 2008 (non-R2) and higher. Good catch though on asking what OS. I created some screenshots on this very subject earlier today to write a blog about this error because I've seen a lot of people running into this due to not having the .NET framework prerequisite.

    Here's the blog article I referenced in my previous post:

    I wouldn't have asked on non-Windows 7 🙂

    Didn't think about the .net, but i do have .net 4, and I am still getting the error.

    I have the aforementioned MSU file.. I'm definitely stumped on it so far..

    I got it working. I tried the solution from the german translation, but that didn't work.

    It turns out that the client profile of .net 4.0 was not sufficient, I had to install the full version, and then I was able to successfully install PS v3.
