I have tried installing a script from PSGallery using multiple "tricks" to get around the Windows Security (that prevents accessing the default PS folder), as by default, it results in:
PackageManagement\Install-Package : Administrator rights are required to install or update. Log on to the computer with an account that has Administrator rights, and then try again, or install by adding "-Scope CurrentUser" to your command. You can also try running the Windows PowerShell session with elevated rights (Run as Administrator).
After all attempts, when I got the module saved to a folder Sitecore user has access to (using the
Save-Module command), and ran
Import-Module -FullyQualifiedName '<path>' it resulted in
Import-Module : The current provider (Sitecore) cannot open a file. referring to the
.psd1 file in the module folder.
I used many articles in the process, but this one seemed the most useful. Also, the answer there, while not providing a solution (because the last part doesn't work), gives hope.
I also couldn't find any mentions of the ability to install modules in the SPE docs, nor a denial.
When asking this question here, I'm expecting to receive:
- A confirmation that the
Install/Import-Modulefeature isn't supported.
- A solution to get around the
The current provider (Sitecore) cannot open a file.error.
- Another solution to install the module.
P.S. No, unfortunately, I don't have the option to grant Windows Admin rights to users
Looking forward to your replies. Thanks in advance!
