    • Hello,
      It's been two (2) years since the download link went dead.
      When is it going to be available again?
      Thank you.
    • Install-Module -Name ScriptBrowser -Force -Verbose
      You may get a prompt to install NuGet.

    • Hi Victor,
      Your answer is right! But I would like to be informed (from the team) instead of searching in the dark.
      Thank you for your help!

    • Last question 2 years ago and url leads to a page that is no longer available.  Is this project abandoned?

    • Am I supposed to copy and paste the script into the console each time, or is there a way to permanently add these scripts to the terminal?
  • Error on Install with Document redirection
    2 Posts | Last post April 25, 2014
    • Hello, We have "My Documents" redirected in our environment which seems to cause an issue on install. Error is:
      Error 1001. An Exception Occurred during Commit phase of the installation. This exception will be ignored and installation will continue. However, the application might not function correctly after installation is complete. --> Access to the path '\\remoteserver\documents$\username' is denied.
      But the install then rolls back rather than ignoring the exception as one would expect from the error text. I've worked around this by just running it as a user without that policy, but it would be nice to get that fixed.
    • We are fixing the 1001 install problem in the upcoming 1.1 update of Script Browser.  Here is a temp workaround:
      Start a new cmd command prompt as administrator (run as administrator), navigate the ScriptBrowser.msi file, and run the msi.  
      After you launch the Script Browser after the successful installation, you may want to change the sample download location in the settings immediately to a local folder.   We do not support downloading samples to a shared folder in the current version.
  • Error when running the $Profile script
    2 Posts | Last post April 18, 2014
    • The line below generates an error which prevents the Script Browser from working.
      $scriptBrowser = $psISE.CurrentPowerShellTab.VerticalAddOnTools.Add('Script Browser', [ScriptExplorer.Views.MainView], $true)
      This is the error message:
      Exception calling "Add" with "3" argument(s): "Cannot create element because an exception occurred with the message: The specified registry key does not exist..
      Parameter name: controlType"
      The error message does not list the registry key that does not exist.
    • Hello,
      Thank you for your feedback. We are investigating this issue. Please stay tuned.

      How do I resolve this?
    • Hello,
      Thank you for reporting the issue.
      We have found the problem and fixed it in our source control.  The issue impacts users whose locale treats double number as #,#### (e.g. 1,2).  Before we release the 1.1 version of Script Browser in the near future to include the fix and some small features, would you please try the following workaround that a MVP figured out?
