The Import System Modules task automatically includes all the Windows PowerShell modules and snap-ins that are in the modules in the %Windir%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\1.0\Modules directory. MDT automatically installs the MDT Windows PowerShell snap-in—Microsoft.BDD.SnapIn—in that folder during the MDT installation process.

Note   The Import System Modules task is available only in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 when Windows PowerShell 3.0 is not installed on the computer. Beginning with Windows PowerShell 3.0, modules are imported automatically the first time that you use a cmdlet in the module.

You can start a Windows PowerShell console with the Import System Modules task by performing one of the following procedures:

·     In the taskbar, right-click the Windows PowerShell icon, and then click Import System Modules.

·     Click Start, point to Administrative Tools and then click Windows PowerShell Modules.
