    I am trying to add the Exchange 2010 PS Snapin but I keep getting the following error:

    PS C:\Program Files> add-pssnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010

    Add-PSSnapin : Windows PowerShell snap-in "Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010" is loaded with the following warnings: The following errors occurred when updating the assembly list for the runspace:
    Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Exchange.PowerShell.Configuration' or one of its dependencies. An argument was out of its legal range. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131502).
    At line:1 char:13
    + add-pssnapin < <<< Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010
    + CategoryInfo : InvalidData: (Microsoft.Excha...owerShell.E2010:String) [Add-PSSnapin], PSSnapInException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : AddPSSnapInRead,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.AddPSSnapinCommand

    I have no idea why the snap-in should come up with errors. The Exchange 2010 Management Tools are installed on the server I'm running this command on. Does anyone have any idea's?

    What happens when you launch the Exchange Management Shell using the shortcut? I'm curious if that is also broke.

    Hi Mike,

    The EMS works fine. I have run a few basic queries on it and all have come up as expected. I might try using a PS Console file to add the Exchange sanp-in and see how that goes.

    Hmmm...yeah that is odd. You may try adding the -Verbose parameter when trying to load it to see if it will give you more details about what the problem is.

    Just remember that adding the pssnapin like that completely bypasses RBAC, and isn't recommended. You'd be better off establishing a remote PowerShell session to an Exchange server.
