New-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet not available on 2010

I have an exchange 2010 server on SBS 2011 all service packs and hotfixes for both the OS and exchange have been installed.
- I am opening Powershell as administrator
- I have successfully run New-ManagementRoleAssignment for the admin account.
- While I'm not that far along, I have created a share and added exchange trusted user account to the share with full rights.

Cmdlet is not available.

I found one thread that says to add-pssnapin Microsoft* but that doesn't load (assembly is built by a runtime newer...)

Any suggestions to get this cmdlet recognized?

" Powershell as administrator"

That is your mistake.

Run Exchange Management Shell as Administrator. It is in the Exchange group on the Start Menu. Powershell does not mean EMS.

What command did you run to grant yourself permissions to do the new-mailboxexportrequest?

Are you sure that you are on SP3 for Exchange 2010? It doesn't install via Windows Update.

Fair questions.  
Did windows update to get latest hotfixes and netframeworks etc.
Downloaded Exchange2010-SP3-x64.exe and installed
After reboot, Windows downloaded an exchange rollup 4 and installed.
From:
- Start, all programs, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, and then Exchange Management Shell
- right click on the exchange management shell and run as administrator
- Once the PS prompt shows, the title bar shows Machine: <machine name.domain>
In the EMC, Get-ExchangeServer reports version 14.3 (Build 123.4)

------------------
That being said, while I was looking for the get-exchangeServer cmdlet, I found a thread that had a user load Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010 because he was using PS (as you said in your first response) rather than EMC.  
I loaded it in the EMC.  
Command is available.  Export worked.  I'm a happy camper.
Pride forces me to share, while I hear laughing and "yea right", I really am using the EMC shell. ha.  

Thank you for your help.  Would not have run across this solution without running through to verify your questions.  If you'll post the add-pssnapin line as a response, I'll accept it as the solution and close this out.
thanx
