Running Management Console script throws a RuntimeException error


When running the Management Console in PowerShell, the script throws the following error:

File C:\Program Files\Scorpion Software\AuthAnvil\AuthAnvilTools.AuthAnvilManagementConsole.ps1 cannot be loaded because the execution of scripts is disabled on this system. Please see "get-help about_signing" for more details.At line:1 char:33+ .\AuthAnvilManagementConsole.ps1 <<<<    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], PSSecurityException    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : RuntimeException



By default, PowerShell is not allowed to run ANY scripts.  This prevents the Management Console from working.


The AuthAnvil Management Console is a script signed by a trusted publisher.  Run the following command to allow scripts signed by trusted publishers:

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned(The default execution policy is set to "Restricted")

For more information about running PowerShell scripts, see this TechNet article:
