SharePoint 2013 (Preview) PowerShell bug .. sort of ..

This threw me when I got my first few SharePoint 2013 farms up and running. It looked like PowerShell had failed but actually everything was working fine.

When you start up the SharePoint 2013 Management Shell (aka PowerShell) then you get an error:

could not create a CmdletConfiguration for CmdletName Start-BulkOperation, CmldetClass, CmdletHelpFile C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\CONFIG\PowerShell\Help\Microsoft.Office.Education.Institution.dll-Help.xml. Cannot process argument because the value of argument “implementingType” is null. Change the value of argument “implementingType” to a non-null value.

This all looks kinda scary, but its actually just a bug in the SharePoint 2013 PowerShell scripts (don’t forget .. we are talking about a beta build here!)

In fact .. you should find all your PowerShell stuff works just fine

    I don't have try still but if we Change the value of argument implementing Type to a non-null value then will be run without giving error?
