If yes, please share how you did. Thanks February 4, 2016 at 4:51 am #34823 CognicParticipant This is what I see: "WARNING: Unable to download the list of available providers. Check your internet connection." Internet access is there from the machine when browsed from Internet explorer February 4, 2016 at 5:11 am #34826 Wilfredo PerezParticipant Can you update help? You may have to authenticate first from within Powershell. I am behind a proxy so I need to use: $webclient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient $creds = Get-Credential $webclient.Proxy.Credentials = $creds Save-Help -DestinationPath C:\Powershell Update-Help Do you have admin rights? Hope this helps February 4, 2016 at 6:12 am #34832 CognicParticipant Thanks Wilfredo for your reply. Apologies that I haven't mentioned the ways I have already tried. I have tried setting the proxy through the PowerShell in the following ways: $webclient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient $creds = Get-Credential $webclient.Proxy.Credentials = $creds Also, using the scripted credentials: $webclient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient $pwd = ConvertTo-SecureString "password" -AsPlainText -Force $creds = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential("username",$pwd) $webclient.Proxy.Credentials = $creds But both didn't work. I can't update help and I do have admin rights. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
