Just For Me: Lync 2013 PowerShell Prereqs

Every now and again I write a blog post just for my own reference, this is one of those.  There are many great posts and blogs out there walking through the PowerShell prerequisites for Lync, I’d suggest hitting up Bing if you’re looking for more detail as this post is more for myself.  I deploy a lot of Lync, and it’s easier for me to come to my own blog than to search every time, so this is just for me.  Note that this is not everything you would need to download, just the PowerShell components.
