WinForm Designer the Variable "$base" does not exist

Created a simple WinForm and it runs as expected but in the output window there is an annoing error because there is no variable ‘$base’ in the PSScriptRunner.designer.ps1 file:

Add-Member -InputObject $PSScriptRunner -Name base -Value $base -MemberType NoteProperty

Visual Studio 2017 and PSTools 5.7.1.

Looks like I can answer my own question.
This is the line that is causing the issue because setting strict throws an exception if the variable is not defined:

Set-StrictMode -Version Latest

This hides the exception but IMHO the application should be fixed:

Set-StrictMode -Off

Thanks for the info. Sorry I didn’t notice this question sooner. We’ll get this fixed.
