Remove-Module / Import-Module issue.

I have a module and I made a modification, I changed the name of one of its functions, however, I cannot get the new name to show unless I type Import-Module, but, when I close the PS console and re-open it the old name STILL shows up.

Typing Remove-Module I get this error:

remove-module : No modules were removed. Verify that the specification of modules to remove is correct and
At line:1 char:1
+ remove-module  IvanToolbox  -Force
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ResourceUnavailable: (:) [Remove-Module], InvalidOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Modules_NoModulesRemoved,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.RemoveModuleCommand

In case you guys need to know this is my PSVersion 5.1.14393.1358

What’s the deal?


Hi Ivan,

Try this: Import-Module IvanToolbox -Force

Thank s for the link.

I was able to “fix” it by just typing Get-Module -ListAvailable, crazy!! but it seemed to work.
