I get the following error when I start PowerShell after installing PSCX:

Add-PSSnapin : Windows PowerShell snap-in "Pscx" is loaded with the following warnings: Error loading the extended typ
e data file:
Pscx, C:\Program Files\PowerShell Community Extensions\TypeData\FileSystem.ps1xml(19) : Error in type "System.IO.FileIn
fo": Member "BaseName" is already present.
At C:\Data\username\WindowsPowerShell\profile.ps1:98 char:14
+ Add-PSSnapin <<<< Pscx

I have not installed PSCX before so I have no older versions to uninstall, the environmental variable PSCXHome is there and pointing to the installed location of PSCX. I can use the cmdlets and functions that are installed with PSCX so I am confused as to what is causing this error.

I believe this is a known issue with PSCX 1.1.1 running on PowerShell V2. Both PSCX and PS V2 define a BaseName member on the FileInfo class. You can manually remove it from the ps1xml file mentioned in the warning message.

FYI this issue has been fixed in the current bits and will appear in 1.2.
