You need to uninstall previous versions of Windows PowerShell and Windows Remote Management (WinRM) before you can install Windows Management Framework, which includes Windows PowerShell 2.0 and WinRM 2.0. This procedure should be performed on computers running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, or Windows XP.

You don't need to perform this procedure on computers running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. The current version of Windows Management Framework is already installed on these operating systems.

noteNote:
If you want to run remote Shell on a computer that already has Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 installed, you don't need to perform this procedure. Instead, for more information about how to open the Shell with the Exchange management tools installed, see Open the Shell.
