Import-Module : The 'C:\Program Files (x86)\PowerShell Community Extensions\Pscx3\pscx\pscx.psd1' module cannot be impo
rted because its manifest contains one or more members that are not valid. The valid manifest members are ('ModuleToPro
cess', 'NestedModules', 'GUID', 'Author', 'CompanyName', 'Copyright', 'ModuleVersion', 'Description', 'PowerShellVersio
n', 'PowerShellHostName', 'PowerShellHostVersion', 'CLRVersion', 'DotNetFrameworkVersion', 'ProcessorArchitecture', 'Re
quiredModules', 'TypesToProcess', 'FormatsToProcess', 'ScriptsToProcess', 'PrivateData', 'RequiredAssemblies', 'ModuleL
ist', 'FileList', 'FunctionsToExport', 'VariablesToExport', 'AliasesToExport', 'CmdletsToExport'). Remove the members t
hat are not valid ('RootModule'), then try to import the module again.

What version of PowerShell are you trying to install on? PSCX 3.0 only supports PowerShell V3 & V4. PSCX 3.1 supports PowerShell V4 better.
