Powershell 2.0 not detected on Server 2008R2

I am attempting to install Microsoft Online Services Module for Windows PowerShell.  When I start the install I get the following message:

"In order to install Microsoft Online Services Module for Windows PowerShell, you must have Windows PowerShell 2.0 or greater installed on this computer."

I have 3 according to $Host.Version:
Major  Minor  Build  Revision
-----  -----  -----  --------
3      0      -1     -1

Open in new window


Anyone have any ideas as to how to get this installed?  I'm preparing to migrate from Domino to Exchange Online and the migration server needs to have MOSM installed.

If you Go to Server Manager -> Features -> Add Features -> Scroll down to the bottom -> Check off Windows PowerShell Integrated Scripting Enviornment (ISE) -> Install
 
This should install powershell 2.0 for you.

Then it should be fine.

Try executing the following to confirm and then check the $Host.Verison.

%SystemRoot%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe

So UAC strikes again.  After disabling UAC temporarily and rebooting I was able to install it.
