PowerShell 3.0 requirement in order to install Exchange PST Capture
When installing Microsoft Exchange PST Capture on Server 2012/2012R2 you may receive the following message:
“You must have Windows PowerShell 3.0 installed in order to install this product”
As Server 2012/2012R2 already comes bundled with PowerShell 4, we know this isn’t a requirement but the software doesn’t… Thankfully there is an easy work around. Download and install SuperOrca. Open the MSI and drop the row requiring PowerShell 3.
Easy as that!

MS should hire you to fix their $$$
hmm, i get a PST Capture Setup ended prematurely, and nobody likes that. Is that call for powershell 3 listed anywhere else?
Not that I’m aware of but look at enabling logging on the installer and see if that helps: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2844231.
