Exchange Powershell Snap-In problem/question

I wrote a powrshell script that creates a form for user input then based on the answers it runs several Exchange (2010) commands.  I used PowerGUI Pro to compile the script to an .exe and created a link on our Sharepoint intranet for users to run.  The issue I have is I get an Exchange Snap-in error when I run the script on a PC that does not have the Exchange snap-in registered.  It is not feasible to add the snap-in to each machines Powershell that would run this script so my question is, is there a way around this issue or another way to accomplish the same task?  I've spent a lot of time getting this script setup and would hate to waste it this close to the end of the project.

Thank you for your help,


Sean

As of today, I don't think there is any way around this.  The powerGUI ability to create an EXE is new and may offer this additional feature in the future.

I think this is less PowerGUI and more a Powershell deal.  Is there a way maybe within the Powershell script that could add something to the local machine's Powershell or profile so I can successfully execute this script?  How about another method that could be added to or separate from the script that could allow me to accomplish the same thing?  I know this is far fetched but anyway the servers Powershell shell could be run even though it is being run within a local users PC?

I know I might be reaching here but any thoughts would be appreciated.

Good informaiton but so far I have not been able to get any Exchange command to work using the remote functionality in Powershell.  I can use regular Powershell commands (get-process, etc.) but nothing related to Exchange.

Does anyone know if this is possible?  If not can anyone else think of anything that could answer my original question?


Thanks
