Windows powershell ISE freezes very often after running even simple command. This has been happening since we moved to Windows 10.

    Hey there,

    We haven’t heard anything about this from anyone else, so I’m guessing there might be something messed up with your machine configuration. Would you mind posting the output of $PSVersionTable. Also, is this happening on all Win10 machines across your deployment? Do you have similar issues when using powershell.exe isnstead of PowerShell ISE, or is it limited to the ISE?

    Thanks,
    Joey

        If I just leave the ISE open for a while, it becomes completely unresponsive - full UI hang. It always does this for me for over a year - Win10, of course.

        $PSVersionTable

        Same issue with Powershell ISE, hard freeze after running simple command. Windows 10.

        I have similar experiences on Windows Server 2016 since about the Nov, Dem time frame 2017.

        Started shortly after applying all Windows Updates to the server.

        ISE works anywhere from seconds to minutes, then the process hard hangs. It does not report it as 'not responding' or anything.

        Without profile, and reinstalling P$ 5,5.1 results in the same thing occurring.

        Powershell.exe works just fine, only ISE is affected.
