  • Can you give some details on the error? Line in script or so? I commented out the first line (Import-Module) but the rest of the script ran fine for me... – Nils Sep 6 '16 at 12:10

This is because you are referring 2013 Client SDK dll's.. Look the path points to 15 hive

You should install SPO Client SDK and change to 16 hive in Add-Type


  • I did as you suggested, the issue still persists – spStacker Sep 3 '16 at 16:23
  • Chaning the path to 16 hive did the trick.. I think there was some caching problem in the powershell management shell – spStacker Sep 6 '16 at 15:00

Most likely you are not binding to the right context. If you are working with the UserProfile, you need to bind your context to the My Site host, https://tenant-my.sharepoint.com.
