I follow instructions for install and continue to get nothing but errors or missing switches in module or modules

I install Universal and again missing the port switch on Start-UDDashboard this is following your step by step instructions
Start-UDDashboard : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name ‘port’.
At line:1 char:19

Product: PowerShell Universal

Universal doesn’t have this parameter. This was a parameter in Universal Dashboard v2. What instructions are you following?


I don’t see that command on that page. Can you point me to where I’m referencing that?

The reference is in the example scripts.

Just my 2 cents: I ran into similar issues when just starting. I was installing PSU for a customer that required we run it on a different drive than C:\ProgramData, as well as setting it up as a Windows Service, so I went with the ZIP file install over the MSI to give us more control. After testing new installs and upgrades, and the different caveats of each, I wrote up some instructions for the customer’s admins. The forum won’t let me upload Word docs, so below is a link to the document. While not for the MSI install specifically, you may find some value in it:
