Today after starting with my Lync Server 2013 setup I needed to access the Lync Management Shell. After opening the shell i was presented with a black screen and solid cursor.


Opening and closing the shell doesn’t make a difference. To fix this launch a normal PowerShell window as Administrator and run the following command:

  • powershell.exe -noexit -command “cd $env:UserProfile; Import-Module ‘C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2013\Modules\Lync\Lync.psd1′”

After that launch the Lync Server Management Shell and all should be working again.

Hope it helps.
