Thanks for the feedback, Karin. This is known issue and I'm trying to fix it in the documentation without a code fix.

This error occurs when you're using Get-Help in a file system drive, such as C: or D:. When you run Get-Help for Get-ChildItem, you're actually getting information about the features that the FileSystem provider adds to the Get-ChildItem cmdlet. It should work, but it doesn't.

I'm working on a fix, but in the meantime, you can see the files in the TechNet library:

Get-ChildItem
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=113308

Get-ChildItem for FileSystem
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=204557

Thanks,
June
