comment Powershell won't start, fails with 'Value cannot be null. Parameter name input'
In the end, I ended up reinstalling Windows - I didn't trust the install. The problem is solved. However I've marked this as the correct answer, as I suspect either Visual Studio or Expression Blend created a broken profile. Sorry I can't upvote, I'm too new!

cding into the dir does the same thing. I initially launched powershell from the GUI, where it did not produce an error message. I subsequently launched it from cmd to get the error message shown.

I'm launching it from cmd.exe, as mentioned in the question. cding into the dir mentioned and running powershell.exe returns the same message.

revised How do I create a link in Windows 7 home premium as a regular user?
'Create a link' or 'use mklink' but not 'create a mklink' since 'create a make link' doesn't make sense.
