    install/update PowerCLI 6.5.4 from 6.5.1

      Hello Experts,


      I currently have PowerCLI 6.5.1 installed on my PC and i would like to update it to 6.5.4 which has been released recently. I noticed it is only available via PS Gallery however i'm not able to run any of the save-module or find-module or install-module cmdlets given that i'm the Admin of my own PC. Any straight forward procedure to get the update? do i need to completely uninstall the 6.5.1 version to be able to install the 6.5.4 or even 6.5.3? Thanks


      PowerCLI C:\> Save-Module -Name VMware.PowerCLI -Path C:/
