I updated PowerCLI to 5.0 on my machine (Win 7 x64 - PowerCLI previous version worked fine), and now when I open PowerCLI, it just opens and closes. A closer look revealed the following error on the "LoadWithPartialName" line in the script:
PS C:\Users\user> [void][Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("VMware.Vim")
Exception calling "LoadWithPartialName" with "1" argument(s): "Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E
At line:1 char:49
+ [void][Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName <<<< ("VMware.Vim")
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) , MethodInvocationException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException
I then even tried just to load the snap-in, and got the following error:
PS C:\Users\user> Add-PSSnapin Vmware.VimAutomation.Core
Add-PSSnapin : Could not load file or assembly 'VMware.Vim, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=10980b081e

+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.IO.FileLoadException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.AddPSSnapinCommand
I am obviously an administrator on my machine, RemoteSigned is enabled in PowerShell, and I've completely uninstalled and re-installed PowerCLI but still have the same error.
Does anyone now how to correct this?
