Microsoft PowerShell fail to load Modules (Into fresh Windows Dev. Prev. and V.S. 11) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Installing new Windows Developer Preview and Visual Studio 11 into an  reformatted hard disk, because an previous installation of the same (Win 8 and VS 11) on another machine give several error using PowerShell, the first check that I make was about PowerShell.

    Without opening Visual Studio 11 just installed, I start Windows PowerShell Module, but the first response warn me that "errors occurred while importing the modules. To view the errors, type '$error'."

    Typing $error, PowerShell reply with red response "Import Module : The specified module 'cimwfasmodule' was not loaded because no valid module file was found in any module directory.

    At C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\MsDtc\TestDtc.psm1:1 char:1 + Import-Module cimwfasmodule + .........etc.."

    This response is the same that I have had on the other machine.

    The only application that I have installed out of Windows DP CTP & Visual Studio 11, was Acrobat Reader and PsPad.

  • This question is related to a Windows 8 Developer Preview problem, so you'd better post it in the Windows Developer Preview General OS Questions Forum at the following address
