I am new to PowerShell. I am running on Win7 and I have the following module installed.
I constantly hit with error: The term '...' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function,....
I tried google around for solutions and there is a lot of articles, but only keeps throwing more error after error. Is there anyway to verify what is missing?
Can anyone point me to the right direction, any step-by-step guide? Like what needs to be installed first, or how to install guide? Or how to check what is still required?

Hi, what are you trying to do it PowerShell please? There are any number of modules you may need. It would help if you could explain what you want to achieve and then we can try and advise you.

I would like to run some commands to extract some data. A couple of it will be Get-ADUser and Get-MsolUser

OK, please try the following commands in PowerShell;
then try to connect to the MS Online service by entering;
You should be prompted now for your M365 Global Admin credentials. Login and you can run the Get-MsolUser commands.
In order to execute the Get-ADUser commands, try running Import-Module activedirectory

Sounds like you may be behind a proxy server? If so, please try the following commands in PowerShell;
$webclient=New-Object System.Net.WebClient $webclient.Proxy.Credentials = [System.Net.CredentialCache]::DefaultNetworkCredentials
Then try the commands again. Alternatively, can you break straight out to the internet and bypass your proxy server?

I don't think I am behind any proxy, not that i know of. I have tried disabled the antivirus anyway.
But still hit another error:

OK, could be a TLS problem. Try also running this command;
Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = "tls12"
May 24 2020 08:40 AM
Sorry, I missed a bracket at the start. Try again please with correct command.
[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = "tls12"

It works! Thanks. I realized it needs to be run on a 64bit PS.
Also I noticed certain commands we need to first connect to the O365 by:
$UserCredential = Get-Credential $Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://outlook.office365.com/powershell-liveid/ -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection Import-PSSession $Session
But in the steps you provided, we don't have to? What is the difference?

Glad you have got it to work. To answer your question, the commands you have listed here connect you to Exchange Online PowerShell as opposed to connecting to MSOnline. Exchange Online PowerShell will allow you to manage mailboxes and groups and connectors (all things mail really), whereas the MSOnline service allows you to manage User Objects, Licences, etc etc.

I am trying to run the Set-CsUser command but it throws an error "The term 'Set-CsUser' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet." I guess I am missing that cmdlet in a module? Can you please guide me on how to fix this. Thank you.
