can't Get-Help

I'm trying to use the PSCX module (I'm a COMPLETE PS newbie).

I've download and run the .msi.

I can import the module and run commands from it.

What I can't do is access the help.

Both 'Get-Help' and 'Get-Help <command>' return an error.

What have I done wrong?

I can repro Get-Help <enter>.  I think I have a fix for that.  But I can't repro Get-Help Get-Process <enter>.  For now you can work-around this by copying Pscx.UserPreferences.ps1 to your home dir and then editing the file to change this line:

        GetHelp           = $true


        GetHelp           = $false

Then when you import the module do it like so:

Import-Module Pscx -Arg ~\Pscx.UserPreferences.ps1

Sorry for the inconvenience.
