The term 'Select-Object-Property' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

I have a pretty new version of PowerCLI (5.5 Rel 1) and vCenter is 5.5 as is ESXi.

I also verified Automation.Core is installed:

PowerCLI C:\Windows\system32> Get-PSSnapin VMware.VimAutomation.Core

Name        : VMware.VimAutomation.Core

PSVersion   : 2.0

Description : This Windows PowerShell snap-in contains Windows PowerShell cmdle

              ts for managing vSphere.

but after connecting to vCenter, I get error trying to run:

PowerCLI C:\Windows\system32> $Results = ForEach ($DRSRule in $DRSRules)

>>      {

>>     "" | Select-Object-Property @{N="Cluster";E={(Get-View- Id $DRSRule.Clust

er.Id).Name}},

>>     @{N="Name";E={$DRSRule.Name}},

>>     @{N="Enabled";E={$DRSRule.Enabled}},

>>     @{N="DRS Type";E={$DRSRule.KeepTogether}},

>>     @{N="VMs";E={$VMIds=$DRSRule.VMIds -split ","

>>       $VMs = ForEach ($VMId in $VMIds)

>>         {

>>         (Get-View -Id $VMId).Name

>>         }

>>       $VMs -join ","}}

>>      }

Is 'Select-Object-Property not installed?  If not, where do I get it, please?

There should be a blank between Select-Object and the -Property parameter
