Trying to run this in Windows Powershell:

PS C:> (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString("") | iex

Preparing Ruby ruby-2.1.6-p336...
iex : You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression.
At line:1 char:133

  • ...") | iex
  • ~~~
    • CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [Invoke-Expression], RuntimeException
    • FullyQualifiedErrorId : InvokeMethodOnNull,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.InvokeExpressionCommand

    The new script works great, Chris. Thanks!

  • The new script didn't work 404 error downloading. I am using Win7 64bit
    PS C:> (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString("

    Exception calling "DownloadString" with "1" argument(s): "The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found."

    Also an error with the old script
    PS C:> (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString("
    all-windows.ps1") | iex
