    VMware vSphere PowerCLI 6.0 Release 1 build 2548067 - Get-PowerCLIVersion fails

    Softsource Lurker

      Just installed the 6.0 version of powercli


      If I launch PowerCLI as administator (i.e. elevated permissions) all is fine (x64 and x32)


      If I launch PowerCLI as default user (i.e. Not elevated permissions) not all the modules load




      Get-PowerCLIVersion : The term 'Get-PowerCLIVersion' 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

      but  none of the powercli commands run


      and get-module show no vmware modules


      Is this a new feature? needing to run as admin, previous version i didnt need to run elevated

      Anyone else have the same issue?
