Install the Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant for IT Professionals BETA using this link.
Now install the Windows Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell again, you should be good to go!

    This worked for me.  I found it incredibly frustrating that I was trying to install the Azure active directory module that it said I needed this Online Services Assistant.  Fine with me.  But after installing exactly what MS asks for, I still can't install the Azue AD module.  This got me to install it.  Nice job MS.

    Doesn’t work. 3.5 is already enabled.

  6. Hi every body.
    1. you must add feature (Windows Powershell Engine 2.0)
    2. Install Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant
    3. and finally, intall Windows Azure active directory module for powershell

    I have .NET 3.5 and Powershell Engine 2.0 installed and this still wont install.., I’m running Windows 8.1

  8. colin says:

    Also installed the Windows Azure active directory module for powershell, and still won’t install…

  9. Erik says:

    Same problem here, on 8.1 it keeps nagging about powershell 2.0 and now i’am wasting more time on this than it would take me to write the script I need it for. Kutzooi.

  10. Erik again says:

    OK, figured it out… Allthough I am a local admin on the system, double-clicking the MSI resulted in the error bout needing powershell 2.0, even when enabled in programs and features.

    So I launched an administrative command prompt and ran msiexec /i AdministrationConfig-EN.msi

    Now it installed. The registry keys indicationf Powershell 2.0 enabled are probably only readable when elevated.

    Thankyou Erik Worked your msiexec /i AdministrationConfig-EN.msi running from the command prompt as an administrator worked for me.

    I had to install the beta version of the sign-in assistant before the azure module would install.

    18 months since the original post here, and Microsoft still hasn’t released a working production version of the sign in assistant? Ridiculous.

  15. Nat G says:

    It was the .Net 3.5 that gave me the problem – many thanks for the tip.

  18. Balal says:

    30 months after this original post and I still had to use the beta version of sign-in assistant because the production version doesn’t work

  22. Eric says:

    I had to do the same Mike. No mater what I tried I couldn’t get it to install until I installed the beta version.

  23. jim says:
