Help with powershell toolkit on WinXP

I am having difficulty with the import-module on an XP machine. I can use it fine on a windows 2k8R2 system that is attached to the NetApp via FC. Is this module looking for some type of HBA in order to function? (i.e. ISCSI or FCP).

I have successfully listed the modules, but Import gives an error. Please help!

Below are specifics:

Re: Help with powershell toolkit on WinXP

Hello, bedelen.  No, the Toolkit really doesn't do anything at module load time.  I tried Toolkit 1.0 on a 32-bit XP system before release and did not see this problem.  The type 'System.Management.Automation.OutputTypeAttribute' was introduced into PowerShell 2.0, so are you certain that you are running the final PowerShell 2.0 release build (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968929)?

Re: Help with powershell toolkit on WinXP

fyi, this was fixed with the latest release of powershell 2.0
