OK it’s installed.  I should have recognized the Carbon folder as the one to 
copy over to the Modules folder.   I like to put the modules in the system 
default PS Modules folder on this particular server so that the entire team of 
system engineers has access to it.  I’m playing around with carbon-2.0 now and 
will keep you posted.   Thanks for your help Aaron!

That's the correct folder structure. The Carbon.psm1 file *is* in a Carbon 
directory. All those other directories is how we organize Carbon to ease 
development and organization of the documentation. Import-Module expected the 
.psd1 and .psm1 files to be the same name as its parent directory if you pass 
Import-Module the name/path of a directory. You can also pass it the path to a 
.psd1/.psm1 and then the directory name doesn't matter.


Try unblocking the ZIP file and re-extracting. Unblocking individual files will 
be a pain and PowerShell may make you unblock all of them.

Thanks for the Rapid response Aaron.  I was able to unzip with no problems but 
I did not unblock the .DLLs so this may be the issue.  I haven’t had time yet 
to play around with it because I’m swamped with some PS scripts at work today 
:).  I will play around with it tonight.   I tried the 2.0 alpha version since 
I have PS 4.0 and I get the same error.  For now here is a screenshot of the 
Carbon directory.  Doesn’t the .PSM1 file need to be in a folder named Carbon 
from within the modules directory?  I have only created one module so I am not 
sure.  I will work on this more later tonight as I am hoping to get this 
working.  If it works properly it will solve some issues I am having.   Is 
there a way to see the past email questions at freelist.org 
<http://freelist.org> ?  CC’ing the list as a test.

Make sure you unblock Carbon before you try to load it. Right-click its zip 
file, choose Properties, then unblock.


Strange that the Carbon.psm1 file isn’t there. Where/how to do download/install 
Carbon? Can you send a screenshot of the C:\Users\ad-johnstw1\Desktop\carbon 
modules\Carbon directory?


To send an e-mail to the mailing list, use the address carbon@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 
<mailto:carbon@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>  .

Hi Aaron,


I am trying to import/load the carbon-1.8.0 module but am getting the following 



Import-Module : Could not load file or assembly 
'file:///C:\Users\ad-johnstw1\Desktop\carbon module\Carbon\bin\Carbon.dll' or 
one of its dependencies. Operation is 

not supported. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131515)

At C:\Users\ad-johnstw1\Desktop\carbon module\Carbon\Import-Carbon.ps1:53 char:1

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

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 



Also I could not load the module as the .psm1 file was not in a carbon folder 
from within the modules directory.  Do you have any more detailed install 
instructions?  Also, there are no instructions on accessing or sending email to 
the list on  <http://freelist.org/> freelist.org even after I joined the list 
and created the account.  Any help would be greatly appreciated as your module 
looks interesting.  It’s just not very easy to get working.   I am using PS 
4.0.  Thanks.
