C#: Ps1 Cannot Be Loaded Because Running Scripts Is Disabled On This System

This error occurs when the execution of PowerShell scripts is disabled on your system. By default, PowerShell restricts the execution of scripts as a security measure.

To resolve this issue, you can enable the execution of PowerShell scripts by changing the execution policy. Follow these steps:

  1. Open a PowerShell session as an administrator.

  2. Run the following command to check the current execution policy: Get-ExecutionPolicy

  3. If the output is "Restricted," it means that scripts are disabled. You need to change it to a less restrictive policy.

  4. To set the execution policy to a less restrictive level, run the following command:
    Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

    Note: The "RemoteSigned" policy allows the execution of locally created scripts but requires signed scripts from remote sources.

  5. Confirm the change by typing "Y" and then pressing Enter.

  6. Close the PowerShell session and reopen it.

  7. Try running your script again.

After following these steps, you should be able to execute PowerShell scripts without encountering the "ps1 cannot be loaded because running scripts is disabled on this system" error.
