As I mentioned above I want to modify given UserProfileProperties.

This is what I have found during the last two hours. I also found several other things, but it won´t work. I modified all paths, so that it should work, but it doens´t.

Is there a simple solution for that?

System.Management.Automation.MethodInvocationException: Exception calling "GetPr ofileSubtype" with "1" argument(s): "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." ---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an istance of an object.

Thanks for all effort!
