When running:

Get-PSRepository

in Powershell and you get the error:

WARNING: Unable to find module repositories.

This is normally because you are behind a poxy and you need to set the proxy settings for Powershell, to do this follow these steps:

  • Run
notepad $PROFILE
  • Notepad will open and probably tell you the file is not present and would you like to create it, select yes and enter the following in the file, obviously changing the proxy and port to your proxy and port:
[system.net.webrequest]::defaultwebproxy = new-object system.net.webproxy('http://YOURPROXY:8080')
[system.net.webrequest]::defaultwebproxy.credentials = [System.Net.CredentialCache]::DefaultNetworkCredentials
[system.net.webrequest]::defaultwebproxy.BypassProxyOnLocal = $true
  • Save and exit the file
  • Close and re open Powershell
  • Run
Register-PSRepository -Default

This should now allow you to register the repos.
