Did version 1.2 drop Edit-File?

No, it is still there.  Are you using the beta Module support for PowerShell 2.0?

98> gcm edit-file
CommandType     Name            Definition
-----------     ----            ----------
Function        Edit-File       param([string]$Path)...

I've downloaded and installed the latest MSI .1.2 and I'm using V2 RC for Vista, I don't see any psm1 files include to load. Where are they installed to? I noticed the alias 'e' was no longer defined in the alias script also.

I've completely uninstalled PSCX and re-installed with replace profile. Still I'm missing PSCX cmdlets. Running Get-Pssnapin shows the snapin is loaded. On my Windows 7 RTM box, works fine.

It sounds like your profile is not running.  Have you run Set-ExecutionPolicy on this machine yet?  You might try manually running:

Add-PSSnapin Pscx
. "$Pscx:ProfileDir\PscxConfig.ps1"

Edit-file is a compiled cmdlet, correct? It's not a problem loading my profile, running add-pssnapin pscx or execution policy setting:

PS C:\Users\cmiller6\bin> Get-ExecutionPolicy
PS C:\Users\cmiller6\bin> Add-PSSnapin Pscx
Add-PSSnapin : Cannot add Windows PowerShell snap-in Pscx because it is already added. Verify the name of the snap-in a

Edit-File is a function that gets loaded via the call to PscxConfig.ps1.  Make sure you are executing this:

. "$Pscx:ProfileDir\PscxConfig.ps1"

Opps, I was missing that line in my profile on my Vista machine.
