Out-GridView is a great way to present results in a “mini-Excel” sheet:

Get-Process | Out-GridView

However, Out-GridView has two requirements:.NET Framework 3.51 and the built-in script editor ISE must both be installed. ISE is not installed by default on Windows Servers. So, if you want  to use Out-GridView on server products, you will need to make sure you install the ISE feature.
On a Server 2008 R2, you could enable ISE by using PowerShell:


Import-Module ServerManager
Add-WindowsFeature PowerShell-ISE
