Azure Labs commandlets on Windows x64

powershellI was doing the Hands on Labs from the Azure SDK the other day and one of them involves a task list that a very handy PowerShell commandlet is supposed to fill.

The problem?

Registering commandlets...
Add-PSSnapin : No Windows PowerShell Snap-ins are available for version 1.
At C:UsersMadd0DocumentsAzureServicesKit-FebLabsAdvancedSQLDataServicesAssetsSDSSetup.ps1:17 char:13
+ Add-pssnapin  <<<< AzureServicesManagement

Now, why wouldn’t there be any snap-ins available for version 1? I can see the dll sitting there and I can only assume that Microsoft released code that works.


As many other problems developers face these 32-to-64-bit-transition days, the missing snap-in just needed to be executed in a x86 environment, but I happen to work on Vista x64 (yep, a little masochistic, I know…).

The solution then is simply to open the console called Windows PowerShell (X86) and execute the SDSCreateStorage.cmd command there—don’t forget to run as Administrator.
