Issue

The commandlet

Import-Module powerVault

fails with following exception:

Could not load file or assembly 'Autodesk.Connectivity.WebServices, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=aa20f34aedd220e1' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.


Cause

When using powerVault 19.0.9 (or higher) and calling 

Import-Module powerVault

the import fails because the powershell Host, which runs the powershell session does NOT implement or support the Write-Host Commandlet.


Solution 1

The current powershell Host has to implement the Write-Host function.


Solution 2

Overload the function by calling 

function Write-Host{}

before calling

 Import-Module powerVault
