    First off, I am using Don's PowerShell 3 2nd edition. At chapter 3. I have two machines that are not internet connected. Thought this would be easy. šŸ™ I am running everything in Administrator and using ISE x64.

    I used this command on a connected computer that has a share (Everyone – Read, Modify)
    This command worked fine from what I saw with no errors.
    Save-Help ā€“Force ā€“DestinationPath \\CL-WIN830CC\PowerShellHelp

    Went to the non-connected machine and mapped a drive to the share.
    I used this command next
    update-Help ā€“Force ā€“sourcePath \\CL-WIN830CC\PowerShellHelp
    Fails after some files copying with a specific error. I also tried a few different parameters but still same error. Please see attachment. I ended up just connecting one machine to the internet and did the basic update-help and the machine is updated but I have more non-connected machines. Any help would be great!
    Thanks
    Steve

    Well I can see I am going to have user issues posting images.
    Here is the text of the error.

    PS C:\Users\Administrator> update-help -force -sourcepath \\cl-win830cc\powershellhelp

    XML file for UI culture en-US. Make sure the HelpInfoUri property in the module manifest is valid or check your network connection
    and then try the command again.
