Powershell 3 combo installer

These combo installers will update PowerShell to Version 3 on either Windows 7 x86 or Windows 7 x64 / Server 2008 R2

The installer runs silently and installs both the dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe  and either the Windows6.1-KB2506143-x86.msu or Windows6.1-KB2506143-x64.msu files. When the script  completes a pop-up prompting for a reboot will be displayed.
