David,

I installed VS in a 'non standard' way - on my D:\ HDD. your vsi files wont install, leaving a message of:
Installation stopped because the directory for the ProjectType value did not exist.  The project type is invalid for your installation of Visual Studio.
Any ideas please?

I am new to PS and cannot create and execute ANY .ps1 files. I get an error like this:
PS C:\scripts\PS> . ls


    Directory: Microsoft.PowerShell.Core\FileSystem::C:\scripts\PS
