Installing DBATools Without Powershell 5

Steve Jones has to install dbatools without the benefit of Powershell 5.0:

I have a number of Windows Server 2012 R2 VMs. I need to get rid of these and upgrade to WS2016, since installing SQL 2016 is a pain on these VMs. However, for the time being, I’m stuck with them.

I was looking to try some of the dbatools modules. I popped open an elevated command prompt and [error]

This is because that module isn’t in this version of PoSh. I checked, and I could see this is v4, and Install-Module was added in v5.
