    Hi guys,
    just changed my laptop with a new win10 64 bit.
    I'm setting up my apps, my powershell modules and so on.
    Anyway trying to install isesteroids from psgallery, I'm getting this error:

    PackageManagement\Install-Package : Package 'ISESteroids' failed to install.
    In C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\PowerShellGet\\PSModule.psm1:1375 car:21
    + ... $null = PackageManagement\Install-Package @PSBoundParameters
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : InvalidResult: (ISESteroids:String) [Install-Package], Exception
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PackageFailedInstallOrDownload,Microsoft.PowerShell.PackageManagement.Cmdlets.InstallPackag

    seems that it can't download the nuget package (from browser works fine).
    Trying with other modules I get no error.

    Have you got any ideas?

    than you !

    I'd suggest contacting Tobias (the author) and seeing if he has any suggestions.

    Tobias wrote me back ..:
    "This is a known problem with the gallery and was reported to Microsoft. Apparently, larger modules can run into a timeout while downloading. The exception you see has been reported occasionally from users within Europe, and sometimes dissappeared automagically over time."
