  • First of all you should read this: This forum is for scripting questions rather than script requests

    Then you should not post pictures here. They are mostly unreadable.

    And last but not least - if you use Powershell you should stay with the original Powershell syntax. At least in scripts or here in the forum do not use aliasses - especially when you're newbie.

    To list files of a directory you can use Get-ChildItem, to get the content of a file you can use Get-Content. Powershell has a built-in help system. You should learn the basics of Powershell - here are some good starting points:

    In any case the error indicates a broken installation or either Windows or PowerShell. "more.com" is an old and no longer existing DOS program.

    If you are running PS v1 or V2 then you will be using a dummy more.com that should be in the system folder.

    dir C:\Windows\system32\more.com

    All later versions of PowerShell use an internal function:
