PowerBoots install instructions incomplete?

Jun 19, 2009 at 3:14 AM


I'm using Vista SP2 and CTP3.  Following the PowerBoots tutorial and can't get to the New-BootsWindow example.  The PowerBoots full install is in my PSMODULESPATH (c:\users\xxx\windowspowershell\modules\powerboots), but PS can't find the function.

Is there a step I missed?  I have been using CTP3 for some time but am not familiar with modules.

Yes! I'm really sorry about this (I can't believe I overlooked
explaining how to use this).

For PowerShell 2 (Win7 or CTP3), you need to do what you've done: put it
in ...\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\PowerBoots (that is, make a
"PowerBoots" subdirectory in one of the places indicated by
$Env:PSModulePath) ... and then use this command to load it (either on
the console or in your profile):

Import-Module PowerBoots

For PowerShell 1 ... you have to DOT SOURCE the PowerBoots1.ps1 script.
