What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

this may actually not be a powershell issue.

If I navigate to Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0 or the same but WOW64 and run powershell.exe then it loads fine it is just the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell

At the same time the CompanyWeb has stopped working and also the Sharepoint 2010 Timer service and Sharepoint 2010 VSS Writer service have both stopped running and I get an error when trying to start them

okay have you gone through this?

    Click Start, and then right-click SharePoint 2010 Management Shell.
    Click Properties.
    Click the Shortcut tab in the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell Properties window.
    Input the following value in the Target field:

    C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -Version 2.0 -NoExit " & ' C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\CONFIG\POWERSHELL\Registration\\sharepoint.ps1 ' "

yes and it still does not work.

If I change it so that it looks like this it at leasts opens sysWOW64

C:\Windows\sysWOW64\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -Version 2.0 -NoExit " & ' C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\CONFIG\POWERSHELL\Registration\\sharepoint.ps1 ' "

I know this is not correct could it be an issue with my profile because it is trying to open up

I have just tried a few things and I am getting confused.

Other sites are saying that it is because Windows Management Framework 3.0 update has been applied.

however I can not see this installed

I have also run get-host in powershell and it is showing the version as 2.0 so this sounds like the update is not installed.

The issue only happens in Sharepoint  Management shell   if I run this command in Powershell I get the powershell has stopped working

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Sharepoint.powershell

Any ideas

The reason I have given this a B and not A is because it has not provided me with a Solution but has provided me with an idea of how to test things
