I am working with a CMS vendor that requires the installation of ASP.NET MVC4 on the production servers (Server 2008 Enterprise R2 Core Edition).  I have been pushing the vendor to include the dependencies in the build, however, they are requiring the installation.

I have downloaded the standalone installation AspNetMVC4setup.exe from microsoft
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30683

When I try to run the installer, I receive the following error

Setup Failed
0x81f40001 - This product requires PowerShell 2.0
ASP.NET MVC4 Installation Error
I have verified PowerShell 2.0 is installed and have spent days researching.  Any help wold be appreciated.

Strange, that seems right. Are you sure you have the right installer and did you also try to install the software 'as admin' with levated rights?

Also, what does      Get-ExecutionPolicy     tell you?

I am in an admin command prompt while attempting to install it.

Current execution policy is
RemoteSigned

It is very strange
