Azure PowerShell Errors Pt. 1…

Following up my original post from last year, “How to manage Azure from PowerShell on your PC“…

If you haven’t updated your Azure PowerShell installation in the last few months, you very well may be seeing errors that say Requested value (something) not found, like this:

Requested Value (something) Was Not Found

The first thing you should do is to go to Control Panel -> Programs, and take a look at the version of the Windows Azure PowerShell listed there.  But, I suspect that if you’re reading this, you already know it’s older and out of date…  like mine was:

Azure PowerShell Old Version

How do you fix it?  Easy.  Just re-install on top of the existing.  In fact, if you go back to my original installation post and follow the install process, it will put in the newest, correct version.  After clicking the installation link, the Web Platform Installer launches, like this:

Web Platform Installer

If you click on “options”, you’ll see what it will be installing…

Web Platform Installer Details

Upon launch, you have to allow the startup scripts to run (Why is this?  More on this in Part 2!)…

Azure PowerShell Accept message...

…and allow, and allow, and allow (again, more on this in Part 2)…

Azure PowerShell Accept and Accept...

And finally, you should be good to go.  Your Programs listing should now look more like this:

Azure PowerShell New Version

…and once again, your shell should look like it once was:

Azure PowerShell Working Again

Happy Azuring!
