Get-VM returns no results

After spending a while trying to figure out why I couldn't get this to return any results I thought I'd share my numptiness...  I'm running my Windows Server 2008 with UAC on and therefore Powershell script by default opens without elevated privileges...  Running a second instance as Administrator and typing Get-VM brought back screenfuls of information and ended my pain.

Perhaps a reminder that this needs elevated privileges might help or maybe I'm just learning that it would be better to turn UAC off?

Yes, I really should have some release notes which cover things like that.

I've also added a work item to display a warning when PS is running non elevated.
