Re: Import-Module HPEOneView.550 The library is unable to load

Ideally, you should be asking this over on the GitHub HPE OneView PowerShell project issue tracker or Discussions.   SO for future reference, please use that location to engage us for support.

What does the output from the following return:


Get-Item 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full\' |  Get-ItemPropertyValue -Name Release


There should be only 1 string returned, and it should be greater than 461808.  If the string value is less than that, you may have removed the .Net Framework feature from Windows.  Do know that WIndows 10 1709 shipped with the .Net Framework client 4.7.1 (documented here, you will see under the 4.7.1 section), which is likely being detected.  So, you will need to download and install at least the 4.7.2 or newer installer.

Hi Chris , 

Thank you it worked for me , 

the  string value was less than 461808 ,  so i installed the .Net frame work 4.8 and re-run the command again could see that the string version is 528049 , and the Import-Module ran just fine afterwards , Thank you so much 

Will make sure to post at the discussion page in future issues . 

Kind Regards ,
