I keep getting this error when I try and run the antiSpam powershell on my exchange server.
--------
PS C:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\scripts> ./install-antispamagents.ps1
Get-ItemProperty : Cannot find path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\v8.0\Setup' because it does not exist.

The term 'get-transportserver' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the
 spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

If you run get-transportserver command in Exchange Management Shell, then it will list the Transport Servers from your environment..

install antispam agents options are available only for exchange 2007 and exchange 2010 servers.

Seems like you are trying to run from Exchange 2003. ?
