PowerShell 3 Installer sets Shell registry key wrong at Windows Server 2008 R2

User(s) can reproduce this bug
After installing PowerShell 3 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine, I can't execute .ps1 scripts from the Windows Explorer context menu.
It seems the PS3 installer sets the Shell registry key to a wrong value. After manually setting the Shell registry key to the old, PS1, value, everything works fine again.
See here for a full discussion:
Please check and eventually fix if you see a flaw in the PS3 installation routine.
How often does this happen?
Have you seen this problem before in this product?
No, this is new to the most recent version
Install PowerShell 3 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 (once without having ISE added to the Windows Server features and then a second time having ISE added to the Windows Server features).
Try to execute a .ps1 file using the Windows Explorer context menu.
The .ps1 file should get executed flawlessly.
