** UPDATE 25/12/2015 Due to WMF5 Install issues the InstallWMF5.ps1 Script has been removed from GitHub until the PowerShell Product Team re-release the WMF5 installers. Once re-released I will re-release the InstallWMF5.ps1 script **
This is a very very quick post about installing WMF5 on Windows 8.1 or Server 2012 / Server 2012 R2 via this function script I created
And what better way than a simple 1 liner to grab and run the script
Invoke-Expression (New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadString(‘http://bit.ly/InstallWMF5')
And if you want to look at the Script then direct link is http://bit.ly/InstallWMF5
Hope this is useful for you

PPS – There is an issue with running this on Windows 7 / Server 2008R2 machines due to the need for WMF4 to be installed.
I am working on this but may not have this ready until the new year.
PPPS – you will see a theme here – I am intending to build functions like this and release them as a full module in the PowerShell Gallery to help Automate these tasks – so look out for some more like this in future.
