Toolkit 3 installation issue

I downloaded the toolkit and unzipped to C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0

Then using import-module DataONTAP I get an error:

import-module : Could not load file or assembly

'file:///C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\DataONTAP\OntapiPS.dll' or one of its dependencies.

Operation is not supported. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131515)

At line:1 char:1

+ import-module DataONTAP

+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (:) [Import-Module], FileLoadException

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : FormatXmlUpdateException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.ImportModuleCommand

Any ideas what this might be?


Re: Toolkit 3 installation issue

Hello Willy,  Can you please install the msi version from 

Also once you install, set youur powershell execution policy to remotesigned. 

Open your powershell prompt in "Run as Administrator mode" and run the below command 

PS C:\> Set-ExecutionPolicy remotesigned -Force

Then retry importing the module.
