  1. Can the documentation please be updated as well? The document I followed from https://epmframework.codeplex.com/ but copying this SL “F:\MSSQL\”
    .\EPM_EnterpriseEvaluation_412.ps1 -ConfigurationGroup “” -PolicyCategoryFilter “” –EvalMode “Check” into a powershell windows started from SQL gives me an error saying the drive does not exists. Browsing through native powershell using the same command (SL “F:\MSSQL\”) does work. This doc needs to be updated to the syntax that SQL Powershell can use. Running the PS script as a job allows with the same command allows it to be found but still fails to a syntax error. The error, if (-not (Get-PSSnapin | ?{$_.name -eq ‘SqlServerProviderSnapin100’}))etc… The term ‘Get-PSSnapin’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, I have done exactly as the document says so I feel it should be updated or these errors with resolution should be included. Thanks!

    1. You need to replace the drive letter with that of your system. The F:\ is only there as an example. We’ll update the documentation to better reflect this, thanks.
