custom Modules not highlighting/ loading in object broswer

Product, version and build: PowerShell Studio 2015 Active Trial Version 4.2.99
32 or 64 bit version of product: 64-bit
Operating system: Windows 10 version 1511 OS build 10586.71
32 or 64 bit OS: 64bit



New to PowerShell Studio so this may be a user error, but none of my imported modules commands are showing in the Object browser or are being colored/highlighted in the scripting panel.

I have tried rebuilding the cache a couple times. also I have tried to load them various ways ( i.e when the PSmodules path didn't work, I added imported thru my profile/ manually imported. Then rebuilt the cache again. ) Also I have checked the cmdlet primalsense is set to all cmdlets.

but nothing seems to work.

As of right now I'm only trying to load the AWS modules, and they are working in the ISE without issue. Any ideas of what I should try next?

There appears to be something hinky going on with the AWS Module. We're investigating this and will reply when we have more information.

So it's with the AWS module and PowerShell studio, an not my setup. I feel better, thank you.

While we look into why exactly the AWS Module isn't being detected, I have a workaround so that it will cache the module in the meantime.

1) After installing PowerShell Studio and the AWS Tools for PowerShell, I refreshed the cache with no success.
2) I rebooted the machine and from the PowerShell Studio console I ran Import-Module AWSPowerShell
3) Refresh the cache one final time and then the AWS Module appeared.

If you could, please try the above and let me know if that fixes it.

I now have it working

What I did is just copy the whole AWSPowerShell directory in C:\Program Files (x86)\AWS Tools\PowerShell to the C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules



I not sure why but either my $env:PSmodelPath is wonky or PowerShell studio is have issues with it on this machine.

DevinL, Thank you for the super quick responses.
