MS Dynamics NAV 2013 Administration Shell is not available

I had some NAV admin tasks I wanted to test using the NAV Administration Shell, however I'm not able to find this admin tool installed on my Win8 NAV installation. I't also missing on a 2012 Server installation, but present on a 2008 Server installation. Is this an intended behavior, that the NAV 2013 setup does not install the PowerShell on some platforms, or is it an option when installing? How is it possible to add the "NAV 2013 Administration Shell" afterwards?

Best regards

    You can install the powershell 3.0, afterwards, search for it on ms downloads

    I had the same problem myself, and solved it by creating a shortcut for the following target (copied from a different server, where NAV 2013 had installed the Admin Shell automatically).
    Change the 70 to 71 if you are using NAV 2013 R2.

    C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\PowerShell.exe -NoExit -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned " & ' C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\70\Service\NavAdminTool.ps1 ' "
