Cannot initialize PowerShell engine Powershell Studio 2022

Post by electromagic »

Good day, have the problem with trial version of SAPIEN Powershell Studio 2022 when trying to run any script from the "Run" button. Powershell version is 5.1 (PSVersion 5.1.19041.1682).
Trying it on worksation under Windows 11 Pro x64, and VM under Windows 10 Pro x64.
Workstation:
Product: PowerShell Studio 2022 (64 Bit)
Build: v5.8.207
OS: Windows 10 Pro (64 Bit)
Build: v10.0.22000.0

VM:
OS: Windows 10 Pro (64 Bit)
Build: v10.0.19044.0

A product error log at:
C:\Users\[User]\AppData\Roaming\SAPIEN\PowerShell Studio\ErrorLog.txt
is empty (doesnt exist).
>> Running (*.ps1) Script...
>> Platform: V5 64Bit (STA)
ERROR: Cannot initialize PowerShell engine
*** PowerShell Script finished. ***
>> Execution time: < 1 second
>> Script Ended
Windows Powershell logs look like that:
Engine state is changed from None to Available. 

Details: 
	NewEngineState=Available
	PreviousEngineState=None

	SequenceNumber=17

	HostName=PrimalScriptHostImplementation
	HostVersion=3.0.0.0
	HostId=e8e4d96a-7c63-48cc-9734-df8411692ac2
	HostApplication=C:\Program Files\SAPIEN Technologies, Inc\PowerShell Studio 2022\Debugger64\scriptdriver64.exe -noprofile -V5 -p 34541 -d C:\Users\*\Desktop\powershell\oneliners -e PoshHostSTA -s C:\Users\*\Desktop\powershell\oneliners\convert-to-diff-numbers.ps1
	EngineVersion=5.1.22000.613
	RunspaceId=f338b5d7-73e3-40d3-a30b-89328ae063be
	PipelineId=
	CommandName=
	CommandType=
	ScriptName=
	CommandPath=
	CommandLine=
At the same time trial version of SAPIEN Powershell Studio 2020 was worked without any problems on the same computers.

Where are you located, geographically speaking? And what are your computer's language / culture settings?
