Try this.  Simple input and output.

$groupname = Read-Host "Please Enter a Group Name"
$grpcount = 0
$data = Get-DistributionGroupMember -Identity $groupname
foreach ($i in $data)
{
      $grpcount = $grpcount + 1
}
write-output "Total Users in $($groupname):$grpcount"
0

So I ran this and got the following error:

Get-DistributionGroupMember : The operation could not be performed because object '$grpcount = 0' could not be found on domain controller 'domain controller name'.  
At line:1 char:36
+ $data = Get-DistributionGroupMember <<<< - Identity $groupname

Did you save it as a ps1 file and run it by calling the script?

Save the tets into notepad and save it as a file, say c:\groupcount.ps1.
Open EMS and enter: C:\groupcount.ps1.
