    The issues you have encountered can be frustrating, sorry that is the case for you.

    Moving this to Survey to try to gauge the scope of the problem for users generally.

    We are somewhat limited by security requirements: what ships with Windows will always be tagged so that nothing can replace it easily unless it is signed by Microsoft. While Pester is part of Windows, it is not owned or developed by Microsoft, so updates delivered via the Gallery cannot be Microsoft signed.

    Once the Gallery version is installed on a system, -SkipPublisherCheck is no longer required for future updates. That first experience, however, is bad.

    This leaves us with a dilemma: do we stop shipping Pester in with PowerShell in the future, or do we continue to provide the feature set knowing users who update from the Gallery will encounter these issues?

    Looking for feedback from as many users…

    I appreciate the value of installing Pester with the OS but if it is not owned my MS, then it shouldn't be installed by Trusted installer nor installed as part of the OS.

    My thinking is it has to be one or the other.
