"Error launching Powershell Script"


Hello, I've installed .Net 4.5, Powershell 3.0 and then right click tools 2.0. I see the right click menu, however, upon launching action, I get "Error launching Powershell Script". Anyone have a workaround or solution???

I'm running into the same issue. I'm wondering if I need any of the older .Net packages installed since I don't have 1.0 or 1.1 currently.

Hmm, I haven't heard of this problem before. The message "Error launching Powershell script." comes from the vbs file I have launching it. The file simply runs:

Powershell -sta -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File Filename.ps1 arguments

Open Powershell as an admin and try running this command:

Get-ChildItem "C:\Program Files (x86)\Now Micro\Right Click Tools" | Unblock-File

Your group policy might be blocking it, so that would unblock it.

Same issue. I had the old version of right click tools and everything was fine. I installed this version and I keep getting "Error launching Powershell script" with anything I select in the menu.

I have .Net 4.5.2 and PowerShell 4.0 installed. This is on a Win 7 x64 OS.
I ran Get-ChildItem "C:\Program Files (x86)\Now Micro\Right Click Tools" | Unblock-File with no luck. I'll keep working on it. I'm sure it's something I have overlooked. Just aggravating that it was working and I messed with it by installing a newer version.
