I have a series of modules (41) that are designed to work together but can be imported separately if needed. When the modules are installed in C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules, it imports with no issue. At this point, we have a simple script that copies all of the modules directly into C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules, and all works well.
However, I would like to be able to use PowerShellGet to create a module package that contains all of the modules together and be able to distribute them as a whole, since they are versioned that way. Ideally the modules would be part of a single parent module that would be the basis for the PowerShellGet package. I attempted to publish a parent module with a manifest, empty root (PSM1) module, and all of my other modules contained in the parent module folder. After publishing to an internal SMB repository, the module installs fine, I am able to see them when I run Get-Module -ListAvailable, however they are unable to be imported the normal way (Import-Module ). For some reason, doing Get-Module -ListAvailable | Import-Module DOES work. What is going on here? What am I missing?
Sorry to be so long-winded and potentially confusing. I am thoroughly confused myself.
