Error while using install-package : Destination Path not set. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I tried using install-package but I keep getting this error:

    install-package -provider bootstrap chocolatey
    install-package : Destination Path not set.
    At line:1 char:1
    + install-package –provider bootstrap chocolatey

      + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DestinationPathNotSet,Microsoft.PowerShell.PackageManagement.Cmdlets.InstallPackage

    I also got it with:

    Get-PackageProvider : Destination Path not set.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Get-PackageProvider -name chocolatey
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (https://oneget....package.swidtag:String) [Get-PackageProvider], Exce
       ption
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DestinationPathNotSet,Microsoft.PowerShell.PackageManagement.Cmdlets.GetPackageProvider

    Any Ideas why?

  • Ok I know where I did wrong :D I change the Program Files directory in registry.

    Now after copying PowerShell folder to this new directory everything works fine.
