Run the Powershell installer on a machine without Powershell already
installed and when you get the first wizard prompt, look in C:\ for an oddly
named string of random numbers/letters (guid-like). Use Folder Options to
unhide hidden and system files if you don't see it. You'll find every file
that Powershell needs to be installed including the assemblies. You can just
copy them from there and continue with the hack you posted a link to.
You can also see one of my other posts titled "homebrew powershell installer
for vista" that shows how I installed Powershell on Vista. It's a bit
different from the other hacks, but it does require downloading "Inno Setup"
- free download) in order to turn the
script into an executable... but it's not terribly difficult.
