Exception typeCondition

The runspace is not in the BeforeOpen state.

The runspace can also be opened synchronously. See the Open class.

For more information about runspaces and runspace pools, see Host Application Runspaces.

The user at the command line may not necessarily realize that the commands that Windows PowerShell runs are being processed within a runspace. From the command-line user’s point of view, commands are run in a Windows PowerShell session. From a host application’s point of view, commands are run within a runspace.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
