Mount-DiskImage on PowerShell 4 doesn't work.  Keep getting message that:

'Mount-DiskImage' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.  

Tried it on Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 Pro. Windows Management Framework 4 was newly installed on both machines. Have run PowerShell as Administrator with same issue.  Got it wonder if some other PowerShell module needs to be loaded.

    Accepted Solution

    Mount-DiskImage is a PowerShell 4.0+ CmdLet and requires PowerShell 4.0 - so Windows 8.1 or Server 2012 R2.

    Pre-PowerShell 4.0 DISM.exe is your best bet.

    The cmdlet is only available on Win8.1 or Server 2012 R2.  Even if you have PS 4.0 installed on Win7 the cmdlet won't be available on that OS.  There's a number of others that fall into the same category.

    Mount-DiskImage  is a part of Storage module, Windows 7 does not have the Storage module at this time, so you need to have at least Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012.Storage Module
