    I have a module and I made a modification, I changed the name of one of its functions, however, I cannot get the new name to show unless I type Import-Module, but, when I close the PS console and re-open it the old name STILL shows up.

    Typing Remove-Module I get this error:

    remove-module : No modules were removed. Verify that the specification of modules to remove is correct and
    At line:1 char:1
    + remove-module  IvanToolbox  -Force
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : ResourceUnavailable: (:) [Remove-Module], InvalidOperationException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Modules_NoModulesRemoved,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.RemoveModuleCommand

    In case you guys need to know this is my PSVersion 5.1.14393.1358

    What's the deal?

      Thank s for the link.

      I was able to "fix" it by just typing Get-Module -ListAvailable, crazy!! but it seemed to work.
