Powershell DSC xChrome Sample failing on AzureVM RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm attempting to run the xChrome sample (https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/DSC-Resource-Kit-All-c449312d) on an Azure VM and it fails to run.  Everything runs and executes, but I receive the error (larger log snippet below): 

    CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (MSFT_xChrome\MSFT_xChrome:String) [Configuration]

    AzureVM is Windows Server 2012 with Powershell Version 5:


    Major  Minor  Build  Revision
    -----  -----  -----  --------
    5      0      9883   0       

    The steps I use to execute are:

    1. Download xChrome extension (from above url) and inflate it into my modules directory
    2. Publish-AzureVMDscConfiguration  -ConfigurationPath C:\Users\<username>\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\xChrome\Example\Sample_xChrome.ps1 -Force
    3. Get-AzureVM -ServiceName '<servicename>' -Name '<vmname>' | Set-AzureVMDscExtension -ConfigurationArchive Sample_xChrome.ps1.zip -ConfigurationName Sample_InstallChromeBrowser  -ConfigurationArgument @{Language='en'; LocalPath='$env:SystemDrive\Windows\DtlDownloads\GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi'} | Update-AzureVM

    The error snippet:
