When I try to install PowerCLI in PowerShell with the command : Install-Module VMware.PowerCLI

I get following error message :

PackageManagement\Install-Package : Für die angegebenen Suchkriterien und den Paketnamen "VMware.PowerCLI" wurde keine Übereinstimmung gefunden. Verwenden Sie Get-PSRepository, um alle verfügbaren, registrierten Paketquellen anzuzeigen. In C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\PowerShellGet\\PSModule.psm1:1809 Zeichen:21 + ... $null = PackageManagement\Install-Package @PSBoundParameters + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (Microsoft.Power....InstallPackage:InstallPackage) [Install-Package], Ex ception + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NoMatchFoundForCriteria,Microsoft.PowerShell.PackageManagement.Cmdlets.InstallPackage Blockquote

Check your repo

PS /> Get-PSRepository

Name                      InstallationPolicy   SourceLocation
----                      ------------------   --------------
PSGallery                 Untrusted            https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2

Then try to install again

PS /> Install-Module -Name VMware.PowerCLI

If possible, give us the ENGLISH error message, I don't know what your error message is talking about, maybe my reply is totally out of subject...
