I am desperately trying to install Powershell 2.0 on my Windows Vista 64 system. I downloaded KB968930 like a hundred times but when I start it it always says that I cannot use it with my system. Something like the update is not appropriate for this system (I have a German Vista...).
I googled and tried a lot, I don't have Powershell 1.0 installed or anything.
So I'm kind of out of options.
Any help?

EDIT: Vista SP2 is installed and I downloaded the correct KB file.

EDIT2: I just downloaded the KB file again and started it. Here is what the WindowsUpdate.log file says:
