# Using 3rd party packages for Powershell Install-Module

It make sense by default if you download 3rd party powershell packages like kbupdate, it should not run right away until you’ve done your due dilligence. You’ll get a warning like this during installation:

Untrusted repository
You are installing the modules from an untrusted repository. If you trust this repository, change its InstallationPolicy value by running the Set-PSRepository cmdlet. Are you sure you want to install the modules from 'PSGallery'?

But when I try to use it, I get an error message:

Get-KbUpdate : The 'Get-KbUpdate' command was found in the module 'kbupdate', but the module could not be loaded. For more information, run 'Import-Module kbupdate'.

Import-Module gives a cryptic message like this:

Import-Module : Errors occurred while loading the format data file:
