Locked out of powershell

Hi folks,

I am attempting to setup autofs to connect and share files on windows 10 PC with Vero 4K+

I screwed it up entirely of course so I have reinstalled OSMC and you probably know what I am about to say…
I cannot get ‘back in’ to the Vero from powershell, I get the warning message and when I attempt the keygen line, it tells me Windows doesn’t support that.

I’m sure one of you will know exactly what to do.

I have no shame in saying that I live in doofusville when it comes to anything more complex than making a folder in Windows 10, so any instructions need to be suitable for a 3 year old.

Thanks in advance.

Alternatively you might want to use an SSH client like putty

Hi, thanks, but I have read that already and I was none the wiser.

Would it just be easier to install Putty and is the problem likely to occur with that program too, because I just know I’m going to be reinstalling OSMC about 523 times over the bank holiday weekend.


Well every ssh client will present a warning if the ssh key of the remote system changes (which happens with a reinstall) but maybe in putty it is easier for you to delete the offending key

Ok, sounds promising, and presumably that would be done in Putty like this…

  1. Open up ‘regedit.exe’ by doing a search.
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHostKeys
  3. Delete all keys in there or delete the individual host key.

I was just getting used to powershell, is there definitely no quickfire way to solve the issue without going to putty?


It is, and it is explained in the link I have added
