To Use PowerGUI for VMware on Windows 2012 Server

I am unable to find any  powergui.exe supported to be used on windows 2012 server

Please help if somehow i can get it to monitor /manage my vCenter server  for different locations ?

and  I am looking for  backup report for almost 100+ vms running in 3 different sites  , so is there any way if i can fetch specific logs from vc for  those all vms coming form specific data center /site/cluster

any script/tool to fetch report for  such vms

PowerGUI is dead since short after Dell took over the company. You can still use the old one, but I don't see how that helps with VMs. Unless you have the paid ActiveTools (IIRC) stuff, that is.

Did you try to install PowerGUI with Administrative Console on that server?

Indeed that seems to be the only way to use PowerGUI and the extra tools integrated ...
