  1. Hi Marc,

    Could you explain How to remove the custom PowerShell profile from SharePoint Server? I have a SP2013 Server in a Windows Server 2012 OS.

    I’m in the same situation, I’ve tried everything without success, and I think that this could be the solution.

    Help in advance.

    Good luck!



    • Thanks Marc,

      Because I’ve not created any custom PowerShell profile, I could not find the profile.ps1 on the path specified by the Microsoft article.
