    Solution: Right click on Run.ps1 and select open with... option,set it back to the default option of Notepad (selecting always open ps1 files with this application).

  • Error code 0x80070011: I'm trying to install .Net 3.5 but I'm getting the following error: "The system cannot move the file to a different disk drive".
