PowerShell – ExecutionPolicy

When you first try to use PowerShell on a device you may get the following error:
  • test.ps1 "cannot be loaded because the execution of scripts is disabled…"
To change this behavior you need to understand the "ExecutionPolicy".  The execution policy determines how, or if, PowerShell runs scripts.  Bty default PowerShell is set to "Restricted".  This means all scripts, even those you wrote yourself, are restricted.  To see the policy level you currently have run "Get-ExecutionPolicy".  To configure PowerShell to run – without question – any scripts that you write yourself, but to run scripts downloaded from the Internet only if those scripts have been signed by a trusted publisher do the following:
  • Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
