Add SharePoint Snap-In to PowerShell ISE

Let me start off with saying that I, in no way, came up with this solution.  It was first shown to me by Shannon Bray (http://shannonbray.wordpress.com) when he and Gary Lapointe were maintaining spPowerShell.com.
Since the site is no longer available, I have had to grab the following information from Kirk Evens (Add Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell Snap-In to All PowerShell Windows) and from Spence Harbar (Adding SharePoint 2010 PoweShell cmdlets to your PowerShell ISE).

Open up Windows PowerShell ISE (Run as Administrator), and run the following script:

# set the execution policy to run scripts
set-executionpolicy unrestricted -force

# Create the profile
if (!(test-path $profile.AllUsersAllHosts)) {new-item -type file -path $profile.AllUsersAllHosts –force}
psEdit $profile.AllUsersAllHosts
In the new Tab,
For SharePoint 2010 add the following:
cd 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\CONFIG\POWERSHELL\Registration'
cd \ 
For SharePoint 2013 add the following:
cd 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\CONFIG\POWERSHELL\Registration'
cd \ 
Save the Profile tab (no, you do not run the script)

Again, thanks to Shannon, Kirk, Gary, and Spence for their posts!
