“Timed out waiting for the PowerShell extension to start” in Visual Studio Code

When you load a PowerShell script you may see following error messages:

Timed out waiting for the PowerShell extension to start

If you see error logs, following appears:

The language service could not be started

One possible reason is your PowerShell executive policy is set to “AllSigned“. You can find the policy by run PowerShell command below.

Get-ExecutionPolicy

Run the following command in an elevated PowerShell window to change the policy.

Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
