"Powershell has stopped working" in Windows 7

Recommended Posts

I am migrating my dashboards from a Windows XP environment to Windows 7 and I have several gadgets that no longer work properly. I don't get a lot of help from the Windows error handling. The error message simply reads, "powershell has stopped working", windows is checking for a solution message box appears (with its progress-bar) and eventually I get the message box that tells me "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." The only option button I have is "Close program".

I get this with two different types of Powergadgets (which all worked perfectly in Windows XP - I don't know about Vista). Both of which are using pipeline objects for some type of programmatically set value such as size or condition. The first type of gadget I discovered this problem with was the out-gauge and the other occurs in out-charts that try to use the pipeline object for conditional attributes. I'm not sure which of the two to share here, so I guess I'll start with the conditional attributes example, since I've seen this documented frequently in SoftwareFX blogs.

I get this error when I pipe results from an import-csv to the out-chart cmdlet as follows:

# lcd1ToddTest.ps1

$condition = {

  if (([double] $_.overunder_pct) -le -20) {

  0;

  } else {

  if (([double] $_.overunder_pct) -le -10) {

  1;

  } else {

if (([double] $_.overunder_pct) -le 0) {

2;

} else {

  3;

}

  }

  }

}

import-csv

We will be uploading a new service pack/hotfix (3588) soon that should fix some of these PowerShell 2.0 / Windows 7 issues.
