    I am doing what the warning suggests, but I still get the warning.

    Any idea how I can get this to stop?

    I did add the xPSDesiredStateConfiguration instead of the PSDesiredStateConfiguration, I thought I would want the newest code to work with the configuration, but it seems I am missing something.

    PS C:\> Configuration SimpleDSC
            param ( $NodeName )
            Import-DscResource –ModuleName 'xPSDesiredStateConfiguration'
            Node $NodeName
                WindowsFeature WebBackup
                        Ensure = "Present"
                        Name = "Windows-Server-Backup"
    $nDir = mkdir C:\DSC\SimpleConfig\$Computer -Force
    SimpleDSC -OutputPath $nDir.FullName -NodeName $Computer -Verbose
    WARNING: The configuration 'SimpleDSC' is loading one or more built-in resources without explicitly importing associated modules. Add Import-DscResource –ModuleName

    Usualy this means there's something wrong with your $env:PSMosulePath.

    Nothing in your script requires xPSDesiredStateConfiguration, so no need to add it.

    The warning says you should import PSDesiredStateConfiguration, not xPSDesiredStateConfiguration. 🙂 No "x".
