  • Any advice on getting the SWIS module to work with Powershell 7?  Install-Module returns without any errors, but the commands aren't available.  I tried an Import-Module SwisPowerShell and it errored on being unable to load the type from the assembly.

    Thanks for any advice.  Not critical since PS 5 is available everythere, I was just trying to migrate my default environment to PS 7.
