Trying this with PowerCLI 6.3 R1 with the version for 6.3R1 and higher in the downloads. However, I get this error when attempting to load the module.

PowerCLI C:\> import-module VMware.VimAutomation.Extensions

Probably because files downloaded from the web are blocked. Can you try go through all the files of the Extensions module and do:

Right Click - > Properties -> Tick "Unblock" check box -> OK

Then try to import the module in a new PS sessions?

Thanks Dimitar :)
There was no unblock after I'd unzipped and that's probably why I didn't catch this earlier. I went back to the .Zip and found the unblock, after that, I extracted it and placed it in my module path and everything worked great!
