Admin Script Editor (Powershell) won't open

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I'm running Windows 7 (32-bit) and recently downloaded/installed "Admin Script Editor" so I can try to create a GUI for PowerShell scripts.

However after installing I'm unable to open it.

Anyone used this program or know why based off these details it won't launch?
