Hi,
I'm trying to execute below PS command, posted on http://blogs.citrix.com/2014/03/27/hiding-applications-in-citrix-storefront/#comment-134229

$dsInstallProp = Get-ItemProperty `
 -Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Citrix\DeliveryServicesManagement -Name InstallDir
$dsInstallDir = $dsInstallProp.InstallDir
& $dsInstallDir\..\Scripts\ImportModules.ps1

I'm getting all sorts of errors such as
1. Ampersand not allowed
2. Get-ItemProperty : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument 'C:\Program Files\Citrix\Receiver Store
Front\Management\'.
At line:1 char:34
+ $dsInstallProp = Get-ItemProperty <<<<  -Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Citrix\DeliveryServicesManagement -Name InstallDir $dsIn
stallDir = "$dsInstallProp.InstallDir & $dsInstallDir\..\Scripts\ImportModules.ps1"
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [Get-ItemProperty], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetItemPropertyCommand

Please advise
I need to get PS working

Obviously your carriage returns are not correct, and the commands are joined together into a single line. Make sure you use an editor like Notepad using correct line breaks for the ps1 file.

indiated the error here..........

TAKE ` AWAY AND MOVE IT TO THE SAME LINE...... OR PLACE ` BACK AFTER IT FOR CONTINUE NEXT LINE

$dsInstallProp = Get-ItemProperty -Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Citrix\DeliveryServicesManagement -Name InstallDir

I don't know what you are trying to tell us, but try this:
$dsInstallProp = Get-ItemProperty -Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Citrix\DeliveryServicesManagement -Name InstallDir 
$dsInstallDir = $dsInstallProp.InstallDir 
& "$dsInstallDir\..\Scripts\ImportModules.ps1" 

Open in new window
