Hi@Thomas Maurer, how are you?


I'm using System Insights (SI), but one custom SI doesn't have installing using powershell module. Looking for in the logs, I don't found any infomation relevant about powershell command: Add-InsightsCapability -Name "Frenet Capability17" -Library "D:\Deploy\Infra\infra_insigths\LAI.Infra.Insights.Source.dll" -Verbose -Debug


Add-InsightsCapability : System Insights failed to register one or more of data sources for capability 'Frenet

+ CategoryInfo : InvalidData: (Frenet Capability17:String) [Add-InsightsCapability], Exception

Can you help me?


Best regards!
