I was trying to run a simple DSC where I create an app pool so I downloaded the xWebAdministration module, dumped it into C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules directory, set up my configuration, ran it and got this error:
Importing module MSFT_xWebAppPool failed with error – File C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\xWebAdministration\DscResources\MSFT_xWebAppPool\MSFT_xWebAppPool.psm1 cannot be loaded because you opted not to run this software now.
Whaaaaaat? Turns out, when I downloaded the module and unzipped it, it left the psm1 file to be in a blocked state. I browsed to the psm1 file and right clicked it.
This brought up the Properties dialog. Click the Unblock button, then Apply button and then the OK button.
Voila. Problem fixed.
