    Hi, Don,

    Thanks for speaking at AZPOSH last night! Question: The book refers to a file that I don't see in the zip anywhere: 'C:\html\jquerydatatable.js'. Is there a way to get that one?

    If you don't tell it otherwise that comes from a Microsoft CDN. Look at the source code and you'll see the URL.

    Yes, I did, but it shows it as a local file in the code: 'jQueryDataTableUri'='C:\html\jquerydatatable.js'.
    I just found it on the Web: http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.dataTables/1.9.4/jquery.dataTables.js

    Huh. Used to be a parameter – will check and fix!

    Yeah so it's parametrized in the actual function. Just don't provide that parameter and it grabs from the CDN. You're looking at the demo script which is set to run from my computer.

    Cool, thanks. I'm getting this error importing the module too:

    The 'C:\Users\ssaari\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\EnhancedHTML2\EnhancedHTML2.psd1'
    module cannot be imported because its manifest contains one or more members that are not
    valid. The valid manifest members are ('ModuleToProcess', 'NestedModules', 'GUID', 'Author
    ', 'CompanyName', 'Copyright', 'ModuleVersion', 'Description', 'PowerShellVersion', 'Power
    ShellHostName', 'PowerShellHostVersion', 'CLRVersion', 'DotNetFrameworkVersion', 'Processo
    rArchitecture', 'RequiredModules', 'TypesToProcess', 'FormatsToProcess', 'ScriptsToProcess
    ', 'PrivateData', 'RequiredAssemblies', 'ModuleList', 'FileList', 'FunctionsToExport', 'Va
    riablesToExport', 'AliasesToExport', 'CmdletsToExport'). Remove the members that are not v
    alid ('RootModule'), then try to import the module again.

    You're using v2?

  • #12594

    Scott Saari

    It's a client's server, powershell 2.

  • #12595

    Don Jones

    Yeah. Don't do that. It was written for v3.

    I do have the same question. Example references
    and there is another commented out section that uses CDN. Should these JS files be included with the module download?
    Also, for some reason pagination does not work for me.

    Jquery datatables is a free JS script. Just Google it and download it if you need.
