Enable signed scripts to run within PowerShell

By default Windows PowerShell isnt configured to run scripts. You’ll notice this when the following error appears: “ Files cannot be loaded because running scripts is disabled on this system. Provide a valid certificate with which to sign the files. ”

To enable to usage of scripts you’ll need to Run PowerShell as Administrator.

"Files cannot be loaded because running scripts is disabled on this system". Run PowerShell

Once PowerShell is open run the following command.

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

You’ll only need to run this once per machine and will be able to run scripts from now on.
