Azure AD Import-Module – Could not load file or assembly

Problem:

You will receive the following error when try to run the Windows Azure Active Directory Module or run the command Import-Module MSOnline on a Windows 7 or 2008 R2 machine.
Import-Module : Could not load file or assembly ‘file:///C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\MSOnline\Microsoft.Online.Administration.Automation.PSModule.dll’ or one of its dependencies. This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded.
At line:1 char:14
+ Import-Module <<<<  MSOnline
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (:) [Import-Module], BadImageFormatException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : FormatXmlUpateException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Com   mands.ImportModuleCommand

Cause:

This problem will occur due to PowerShell built against the .NET framework in a specific version. You can check it by the PowerShell variable: $PSVersionTable.

Fix/Solution:

For me the problem was solved after installing Windows Management Framework 3.0.
