    At the step of using Powershell to run the ConfigureAgent.ps1 file I am receiving the following errors. Any idea why?

    The term 'Unblock-File' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check th
    e spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

    Todd Olsen : Just checking if you get that issue with Powershell V 3 or above too ?
