Pscx on x64
Installation of PowerShell Community Extensions on 64 bit Windows does not work, here is a workaround.
After installation is finished, the x32 will work, for the x64 version of Powershell you have to do some extra work. First start PowerShell.
Then register the pscx.dll with the 64 bit version of installutil. (Source of information: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms714644.aspx).
PS> set-alias installutil $env:windir\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\installutil
PS> installutil "$env:pscxhome\pscx.dll"
PS> add-pssnapin pscx
On the first line the 64 is important.
