  • Issues running script...

    • I will be the first to admit that I am a PowerShell novice and only a runner not a writer...
      but for the life of me I can't get this script to run
      I launch the ISE (as admin) and even turn off restrictions but when I run it throws a ton of errors but eventually gets the tray icon but does nothing.  I had RSAT tools installed on a 1709 box - so I can edit/view the AD structure and GPOs
      Here's a snip of the start of the errors...
      Exception calling "LoadFrom" with "1" argument(s): "Could not load file or assembly
      'file:///C:\ProgramData\Quick_AD_Support\assembly\MahApps.Metro.dll' or one of its dependencies. Operation is not
      supported. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131515)"
      At C:\ProgramData\Quick_AD_Support\QADS.ps1:11 char:1
      + [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFrom('assembly\MahApps.Metro.dll')  ...
      + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    • Hello, which command have you used ? 
      Have you copied in programdata first ?
      Then cd C:\ProgramData\Quick_AD_Support
      Then powershell .\QADS.ps1
      Or try by running the Run_QADS.ps1
    • Checl also that file are not blocked after the download.
      Right click on files and check if it's written blocked.
      To unblock all files procced as below:
      C:\ProgramData\Quick_AD_Support Recurse | Unblock-File
    • It was blocked!
      Thanks for the replies...
      One of these days I need to actually make time and do a PowerShell course :)
      Thanks for an awsome script!
    • Thanks for the feedback :-)
      If you want I did a post to unblock files directly from a ritgh-click in a folder.
