We are not aware of any issues related with crashes or memory leaks. Can you post/send some sample files that could help us duplicate these issues?

About the error reported by PowerShell, you can fix this issue by running installutil PowerGadgets.Commands.dll (installutil is located in the .NET framework bin folder), alternatively you can manually change the registry at


The version in this registry key should match the version in PowerGadgets.Commands.dll, if you are using a 64bits OS you might also want to check the version under the WoW6432node.
