I believe I have a bug with Invoke-Webrequest.
Invoke-WebRequest -UseBasicParsing -Uri $url "
Invoke-WebRequest $url "
Using invoke-webREquest on that URL Hangs /restarts ISE for me.
I am using powershell 4.0 on windows 7 Sp1 64 bit.
Name : Windows PowerShell ISE Host
Version : 4.0
Repros on the latest versions of powershell.exe and ISE. Filing something internally.

Almost an year has passed, and no updates..
My apologies, Joel. Was doing multiple things at the same time, and I only tried the -UseBasicParsing case which worked instantly. You’re right, I’m seeing the same thing without it. I’m filing something internally.

Seriously? This hangs not just ISE, but PowerShell.exe, all versions. With -UseBasicParsing I can sometimes get a response, but otherwise it always hangs....
