    Hi Shay,

    Do you know if you need to remove the CTP3 version first before installing the RC?

    How can I verify it’s installed?

    Yes, you do need to remove older versions. 

    PowerShell is an optional component for Windows Server 2008 and can be installed/removed by using the “Add a Feature” option in Server Manager.

    To uninstall Windows PowerShell in Windows Vista:

    1. Click Start, in the Start Search box, type appwiz.cpl, and then press ENTER.

    2. In the list of tasks, click View Installed Updates.

    In the Uninstall an update list, right-click Windows PowerShell(TM) (KB928439), click Uninstall, and then follow the instructions to remove Windows PowerShell (notice that the description can be different for CTP3)
